Sisters of Dorothy Riley #189 - It is a time to focus on the importance of giving to others and sharing Love and fellowship with family and friends.
Praise God from whom all Blessings Flow. Give Thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his mercy endures forever. Psalm 118:1
I encourage all of us to reach out and touch someone through a telephone call, cards or sharing ourselves through participating in scheduled activities
Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
God Bless and Keep You!
