Good Sunday Morning . . . and thank you,
Thank you for being here every Sunday morning, giving me someone to talk to. Since my first “Good Sunday Morning” some eight months ago, I’ve enjoyed my Sunday mornings knowing that many of you are waking up early to join me (virtually) for a cup of coffee and a kind, sometimes thoughtful, sometimes thought provoking, sometimes a bit off the wall, message . . . and that the rest of you would catch up with me later in the day.
This past weekend has been a weekend for giving thanks. I know what’s going on these days, but let's keep the glass half full, let us focus on the numerous things all of us should acknowledge being thankful for.
As the people of Christ Lutheran Church, we all have much to be thankful for. For instances, repeat after me, I’m thankful for: the family that raised me, the family I have, the family that relies on me, my friends, and especially those who have made a positive impact in my life. These things are the more typical objects of thanks. Hopefully you can include these items in your list.
So, what else are you thankful for? Feel free to tell me if you want to, but better yet, tell the people in your family. We all need to hear that others are thankful for us . . . so go ahead, tell them.
Even our Lord needs to hear it from us every now and then. May you be reminded to give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever. Psalms 107:1. Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 I hope that all of you can, and do, say that often. It is my hope that you live a life of much thanksgiving.
So, pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit back and relax, give thanks for all that there is, and take solace in knowing that this is the day that the Lord has made; may you rejoice and be glad in it.
