“For he satisfies the thirsty, and the hungry he fills with good things.” Psalm 107:9

I’m still full. Wowsers, Erika can cook a Thanksgiving dinner! Sure, it was just the five of us, but it was a wonderful day. I’m thankful that I don’t have much to do today other than spending time with family and eating leftovers. Life is full.

On this day after Thanksgiving, I am particularly grateful for the abundant gifts of our God. In Christ we truly have all we need – forgiveness, salvation, life. The rest is gravy (mmm, gravy). I’m thankful for the Grace Lutheran Church and School community, and I pray you all have a good, full day.

Yesterday in my sermon I mentioned that by the end of 2020, 1 in 6 Americans may be living with food insecurity. As part of our Thanksgiving celebration, Erika and I made a financial donation to our local food bank. If you want to help, here are a few ways:

Harmony Food Pantry

Beyond Hunger

There’s no good time of year for anyone to worry about where their next meal is coming from. It is a good time of year for God’s people to show our gratitude by helping our neighbors in need. If you’re able, please consider making such a gift today. If you’re in need, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

I should probably go for a run today. But first, where’s the leftover stuffing?

Be well, friends. You are loved.

God, your bless the earth with abundance. As those who have received the riches of Christ, help us to work for a more just world, a world in which everyone has enough. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
