joy for all

An angel said, “Do not be afraid.

Peace on earth is a global goal, but finding it seems beyond our reach.

Second, we need to acknowledge we’re poor peace-makers.
Third, we must recognize what actually brings peace.
Finally, we must lose our fear. ~

he identified those anticipating God’s kingdom as “prisoners of hope”. ~

Thanksgiving Day has morphed from a day for giving thanks to a festival of consumption.
Too much food, too much sports, to much shopping.

Is there anything wrong with it?
What should we do about it? ~

Adopting an attitude of gratitude is the most effective way to get one’s life back on track.
The apostle Paul challenges Christ-followers to
“Sing to God with gratitude in your hearts.” ~
