HAPPY THANKSGIVING....

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
from the Staff of Faith UMC
Pastor Larry, Roxi, Terri and Bret

Please read the letter below that Pastor Larry is sharing with us from a member of the Hill City UMC written a few years ago:

November 2013
Dear Friends,
As we look towards Thanksgiving we are humbled by the bountiful harvest our Lord provides for us.  We are thankful for many things; among them is the gift of our days.  This month I would like to share some thoughts on THE GIFT OF OUR DAYS:  GROWING OLDER IN GOD’S GRACE.

ALL OF OUR DAYS ARE A GIFT FROM GOD.  
Whether we live a long or short life, all of our days are in the Lord’s hands (see Ps. 39:4).  At times it is very hard to understand why some die at a young age, while others live for years with difficult health problems.  Our comfort is that the circumstances and length of our lives is not an indication of God’s love for us.  He can make something good out of our most difficult problems (see Rom. 8:28, 35-39).

HOW CAN I GROW OLDER IN GOD’S GRACE?                             
Here are several things we can do to improve the quality of our lives as we age.
First, we can remember that all of our days are a gift from God. 
Second, we can respect the life God has blessed us with. This can include doing things to protect our physical, emotional and spiritual health.
Third, we can accept that life means change.  If we can develop a flexible and positive attitude, often our adjustment is easier.  
Fourth, we can value the past and learn from it.  Our past experiences are a rich resource that younger people can’t obtain.  By taking our past with us into the future, we create a more meaningful future!

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace” (Num. 6:24-26).  
  
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EACH OF YOU.
