Snow...

Today we woke up to snow,and a lot of it! As I sit in my warm house, looking out on the blanket of white snow,I think of two things.

1.Christ dying for me,my sins,and how His love covers all the yucky imperfections of me. Just like the snow covers all the mud,dirt,and the millions of leaves we did not get raked up before it snowed.
2.I think about how God has blessed me,with a warm home,healthy children,warm food to feed them,coats to clothe them,etc.Then I think about the Mom's in Romania,in the gypsy village,who have no heat,cold dirt floors,no food,no coats,and sick children.

I have so much to be thankful for,and SO much that I can bless others with.
During the next week,while you are partaking in the feast of Thanksgiving,don't forget the millions of people who don't have food to eat.Perhaps you could invite a widow to your thanksgiving dinner,or an international student who can't afford to go home over the holidays,or a family who does not have the money to have Thanksgiving Dinner due to job loss.And,maybe you could pray for the orphans of Romania on thanksgiving day,before you and your family sit down to eat. Or just maybe you would like more information on how your church can host an orphan Sunday.Pray about it,and Please don't hesitate to ask for more information! Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

"For where two or three come together in my name,

there am I with them." Matthew 18:20
