Some folks believe God has turned HIS back on them. They find it very difficult to understand why their lot in life isn't better. To those individuals, I dedicate my Thanksgiving thoughts. I'm reminded that I have plenty of food for the festive table, so I'll remember the hungry; I also have a job, so I'll remember all the jobless; I have a nice home, so I'll be thinking of those who have no home at all; my health is good, so I'll be praying for those who suffer everyday.

A lot of people need to be heard, so I'll make myself available to console; many folks just need to be understood, so I'll be more understanding; and if I can  convince anyone to drop their doubts and replace them with inner faith, then I will have had a small role in turning despair into light and hope and Thanksgiving into 'Thanksreceiving'!
