Greetings and Happy Holidays
As we Embark on this Thanksgiving holiday season we must first remember to be thankful. To be thankful for the little things as well as the big things. We must also remember to give and you did just that.
Luke 6:38 reminds us if we give we will receive a blessing in many ways.
It tells us to Give and it shall be given unto you
Then it goes on to say Shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again KJV
So this scripture truly fits all Chapters of Georgia. I know that each one of you has worked hard serving our homeless Veterans by leaving your families to sit at Golden Corral countless ours; participating in ceremonies and classes on your” me day” Saturday; Serving hundreds of Veterans who gave you a warm smile as you served them by paying their bills when they were in need; supplying meals and clothing services that they desperately needed to keep them warm in case they returned to the street.
When you have done all the things that you have done,I know that the Father is well pleased with the good works that you have done. So I say sit down servants and rest a little while. Prepare to receive the blessing of giving as our scripture declares. Spend much time with your loved ones. Get a little shopping in but don’t over do it. Read a good novel or pick up the good book. When you sit at your table hail a toast to the ones that are missing from their normal space. And when the day is almost done sip on a cup of tea or warm milk and remember to give thanks unto our Father in Heaven
Thank you again for allowing me to serve as your Department Chaplain. May the blessings of the Lord run you down and overtake you is my prayer. Happy Holiday.
