The Seasons Of Life
Through the different seasons
In life that we go through,
God still walks there with us
Through good and bad times too.
We don’t need to stop
And ponder why we’re here,
We just need to trust in God
That He won’t leave us there
It is but for a season
That we are in this place,
We need not sit and question it
Just receive His loving grace
Don’t look around at others,
They can’t give you what you need
Just turn your eyes heavenward
And put your trust in thee
Hard times that you’re facing,
The Lord will see you through
To bring you to a better place
That He has planned for you
We may only call on Him
When going through bad times,
But when things are going well,
He’s seldom on our minds
For even in the good times,
We still need to look to Him,
So we don’t become complacent
And let our love grow dim
So trust Him in the times ahead
Even when you do not know
That He is there beside you,
For He does love you so.

This insane Thanksgiving cake is the new Turducken.
There were only a few coins in the hat.
A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.
Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were.
The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?”
The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.” I wrote: “Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it.”
Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people that they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?
Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.
The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling. And even more beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason behind it!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Reach out to someone in need this week!
Let others see Jesus in you this week!
Be His light in the darkness this week!
Have a Blessed Week!
