Thanksgiving 2018

Some Thanksgiving reflections which originated at The Presence Radio Network. Let us remember that we are, in this nation, blessed in so very many ways:

We'd like to share a Thanksgiving reflection from Glen Lewerenz (Glen's Story Corner) heard weekdays on Morning Air® from 7am-9am.

Here are some points to ponder as we celebrate this Thanksgiving:

If you woke up this morning with more health, than illness, you're more fortunate than the million who will not survive this week.  

If you've never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of starvation, you're ahead of 500 million people in the world. 

If you can attend church without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death, you're more privileged than 3 billion people in the world. 

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over head and a place to sleep, you're richer than 75% of this world. 

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you're among the top 8% of the world's wealthy. 

If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder, you're blessed because you can offer healing touch. 

If you were to read this message, you're more blessed than over 2 billion people in the world who cannot read at all. 

If you hold your head up with a smile on your face, and are truly thankful, you're blessed because the majority can, but most do not. 

1 Thessalonians 5:18 ~ In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

May God bless you all, and wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
