Pastor’s weekly newsletter | 11-19-2021

Dear Church Family and Friends,
We hope and pray that you are safe and well on this Friday before Thanksgiving.
This Sunday I will be preaching on gratefulness and being thankful. Have you ever noticed that nobody notices what you do for them until you stop doing it and then they finally come to appreciate it? This happens all the time in life. When my oldest brother left college after one year at Earlham in Indiana, he went back home to live with my parents. My mother said, “Welcome¬†home, we are glad you are here but I’m going to have to charge you $25 a week for laundry and food.”
My brother was outraged. He said, “If that’s the case, I’m going to move in with my best friend.” My mother told him that would be fine. Two months later, he called my mother and asked her if the $25 deal was still in place. He moved back home appreciating what our mother had done for him.
We live in an ungrateful society and yet we have so much to be thankful. We are so blessed living here in America and Jesus reminds us in the Sermon on the Mount to take no thought what we should eat or wear for God is watching over every single one of us and cares deeply about us. There are so many simple things to appreciate like a beautiful sunset here in Key West or eating an ice cream cone while the ice cream drips down your chin. We can appreciate living in a country where we can worship our Lord freely without the threat of prison.
I hope and pray as you sit down this Thanksgiving that you take some time to go around the table and list 5 things for which you are grateful!
Please keep in your prayers this morning Barry Gibson, Beth Childress and Robert Cintron who is recovering from knee surgery.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Pastor Daniel
