It was a dozen years ago this week. I went on a mission trip to Honduras. I saw such a degree of poverty that i had never witnessed before. yet, i also saw an appreciative and happy people. I saw four boys sharing one lolipop. I saw entire families waiting to get our discarded ICE and have what amounted to an ice cream party. I was touched. Then I come home that same week to a Thanksgiving spread of my grandmother’s doing that would have feed the entire country. It was so good, but for once, my grandmother’s cooking was difficult to eat. All I could think about was how blessed i really was, and how unappreciative I often am of these blessings. We live in a great country and really don’t know the meaning of sacrifice. yes, we have sad moments and tough times, but comparatively speaking, we are all so blessed. I hope you and your family realize your blessings this year. Mainly, realize the sacrifice that Christ gave – His Life – so you and I could enjoy in His fellowship – The biggest blessing of all!
