|Wild turkeys in Parral|
Our whole district had a challenging week - few of us reached our goals. Despite the rough patch, we had an inspiring Zone conference, and we performed a successful exorcism, which ended up blessing a family desperately in need.
I am grateful. How appropriate that this week is Thanksgiving.
What do you say we mark this as the season to make it a habit of collecting blessings. Let's catalog the Lord's kindness. Assemble reasons for gratitude, and state it. Daily. This was the apostle Paul's advice to the Thessalonians.
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Look at the sum total of those terms: Rejoice...when? Evermore. Pray...how often? Without ceasing. Give thanks...in what? In every thing.
Gratitude is a conscious choice in all circumstances. Good weeks and not so good weeks.

This is the Lord's work. The Church is True, and boy am I grateful to be a part of it. Working 'til I drop.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving, Everyone. And, save me some turkey and stuffing!
