This year could we change our Thanksgiving thoughts to Thanksliving?…


Take time for prayer and Bible study.

Have a positive attitude.

Act in ways God would approve.

Number your blessings.

Keep His commandments.

Seek the Lord’s will for your life.

Love others as yourself.

Instill a calm spirit within.

Visit the sick or lonely.

Invite others to know the Lord.

Never give in to temptation.

Grow a bit each day in your walk.

~Dottie Blackman
