I am excited about Thanksgiving in a few days. I am excited for the fellowship of having other people in our home and breaking bread (or turkey!) with them 🙂 I love community and being a hostess. I love connecting with other people and bringing a smile to their face. It is a joy and honor to be able to uplift and encourage other people. It is, I think, one of God’s major purposes for me in this world. I love to encourage. As God encourages me through His Spirit, I love to spread that to others. Words of encouragement have always been so important to me…and I see that it is also very important to my children and husband! There are so many NEGATIVE influences out there, let us BATTLE that with ENCOURAGEMENT. Spread a KIND and LOVING word to someone at your Thanksgiving meal. Give a specific compliment and lift them up. This is a special way to connect and love other people. May my mouth be full of encouragement this Thanksgiving!
I am so thankful today for the body of believers, for community, and for the opportunity to share God’s love with each other.
