Can you believe it’s November already? 

The Thanksgiving holiday is speeding towards us. One day is not enough to express sincere thankfulness!

One of the healthiest habits that we can acquire is to be thankful. We teach our kids to say “thank you” but how often do we say it?

When I make a habit of acknowledging what others do for me, I also profess the value that someone else adds to my life – no matter how small or large. I am also saying that I am not living life alone or independent; I am interconnected with those I encounter, whether at home or in business.

Being unwilling to recognize the need and value of others is often the barrier to giving thanks. In a word, it is PRIDE. I may think it diminishes my own value or strength when I express appreciation, gratitude, or thanks to others.

Then, we transfer that concept to the larger scale of giving thanks to God.
     I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
     I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
Psalm 9:1

Giving thanks to God shows my realization of all of the good that He does for me, but my thanks also points to my need. On my own, I cannot provide all of the good things in life. Giving thanks says I know there is someone there that is bigger than me, more powerful, and loves me enough to demonstrate it.

Due to popular demand, a couple of pages from last November are getting an encore in today’s letter. Please take time to read more about:

become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.
