Thankfulness= PEACE

The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. ~ Psalm 126:3

Dear Ladies~

Wishing each one of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!  We learned in our study a few weeks back that experiencing God’s peace begins with thanksgiving and an overall attitude of praise.  There is always, always something to be thankful for!

Paul tells us in Philippians 4:8-9:

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you”.

Have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving everyone!  I am thankful for each one of you and the unique role you play within our circle.  You are missed when you are not with us- and you are treasured all the time!

See you next Tuesday, November 29th.   It will be Advent!!!!
