Thankful to the Core
By LIN TAYLOR
November is a month when our hearts and minds very naturally turn toward being thankful. This has been an extraordinary year filled with challenges of every variety. Those that test our values, our families, our finances, our friendships, even the very core of our hearts. As we reflect this year, I hope we have taken the opportunities to shake up and shake off our robotic existence.
I believe the world had a bigger disease than COVID 19 that plagued us, that of busyness. We had gotten to the point of cramming so much activity into our lives that we forgot we occupied this life with other humans that mattered. We forgot to connect with each other, know each other, and love each other at a visceral level.
Maybe this change was not such a bad outcome. Use your time wisely beloved. Love those God has put in your care. We have each other for such a short time. Be present! I am so thankful for each of you.
As adults, some tend to think that we should not follow the ways our parents and that now since we are “grown” we don’t have to respect and protect. But I’m here to say the latter. We should now, more than ever respect and protect our parents. Our father’s provided disciplines that led us to be strong individuals and know how to work through trials of this society. While our mother taught us teachings of love and spoken words to be able to effectively communicate with the world.
During these trying times in our nation we need those disciplines and teachings and if we are not respecting and protecting them they will be forever lost. Which in turn leads us to accept and believe anything society throws at us. Are you protecting and respecting your family values?
This is the year of Transformation. Ps 115 The Lord remembers us, and he will surely bless us. May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. If we start each day with giving thanks and outdo one another in showing honor, we can make 2021 better than any year before it! May the Lord bless you and protect you.May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace. Num 6:24-26.
I love you! Mama Lin
