Give Thanks to the Lord

"For everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven."  Ecclesiastes 3:1   Dear Friends,           Perhaps it is time to slow down, set some priorities, and spend some time enjoying and giving thanks for the many God given blessings of our lives: food, family, friends, material possessions, talents, and the gift of time itself.  Perhaps it is time for us to once again take time to really give thanks to God the giver of all good things.  Here are a few suggestions of how we can give thanks:   1.  In offering our time and talents to others - Who is in need as Christmas approaches?  Who is lonely?  Who is sick?  How might you share your abundance with them?  How might this be a season for them to give thanks as well? 2. In offering of our treasures - If you are not sure of the channels to help others, or are limited by your time or ability, or frankly would like to do more, offering up your monetary gifts to God
