Good Morning ..
wow another day to PRAISE OUR GOD ...My leg is still not well so please continue to pray ... I talked to Jane yesterday her
church is gonna do Thanksgiving for the ones they can who are homeless .. yesterday the church has taken clothes and all
kinds of stuff up for the people there she was there handing out things . .. she tells me it is horrible she knows one elderly couple who wont leave their
house but the back of it is gone .. and they scrounge for firewood to heat from the ruble .. I asked her if we could
send things shes gonna talk to her pastor as how to handle it .. So I will be blogging on that soon .. Hope they will
let us all send things so on so we know the people are getting what they need .. So this is a verse I was led to share
this am... 1 Corinthians 13; 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
It has to be God who led me to this one since he has been talking so much to me about Charity .. It is so hard today to
watch those poor people on the tv .. one person was so upset he beat up a electric person... was so sad he had came to help
but I think people are just overwhelmed .. I pray daily but im working on what I can do to help .. will be updating you .
well lets pray we can do that I can do that for sure .. lets not forget them .. I can tell you years later like 3 or more
we had a tornado that pretty well took our town out and its small and we have still not recovered so its a ongoing thing ..
you are Blessed and lets pray we can bless someone today sometimes a word with a smile goes a long way .. love you guys
love Betty

    I remember Grandma talking about the hardship off world war 2 What happened then is way worse then whot happened now She told me one thing Why not use Do we think we to will not have hardships It is whot we are when we come out of it. Is our faith stronger Do we still tank God in the time of trouble Do we thank God more for whot we need not whot we want Dose our compassion grow for others.Do we love God more.

    Good blog! Charity does begin at home and one good deed might spur on another good deed by that person. Last year I won $1000 by buying a ticket to support an animal shelter. We were in tough financial shape at the time and I cried when they called to tell me. This year is looking better so I am sending that organization a check to give thanks.

    Giving thanks, always and in all things. We start at home and go into all the world. Some have this means by PC. However we can bless and be there, in person, or through media, we will celebrate this day. I thank you Betty for posting.

    This is from the book, "Beyond Salvation" addressing Thanksgiving Day celebrated by our country and others.


    Today, be with Me. A national day of thanksgiving and what are My people giving thanks for?
    My child, when your life was in a rut, when answers and guidance was not coming to you, did I not open up the gates of glory and pour out blessings upon you as you began to praise and thank Me for what you had?
    Teach My people and give thanks. Remember that in praise and thanksgiving I undergo to release blessings upon you. Have you forgotten this important lesson and are ready to give up?
    Keep your mind in a frame of thanksgiving. It does make a difference in one’s life. Is someone in a good humor constantly? Can you recognize their source? This may mean a new way for you of recognizing My people.
    Dwell upon this today. Do not give up your daily diary of thanksgiving or you may give up an important source of your happiness and joy. Remember, “The joy of the Lord is my strength.”
