Dear Friends,

As Thanksgiving fast approaches and Christmas is just around the corner… I find myself asking… where did the year go?  Looking back since last Thanksgiving I’m thankful so for all of the wonderful blessings God has given me. I'm reminded of the chorus of an old hymn I heard as a child, "Count Your Many Blessings":


Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God has done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God has done.
And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.

Here's a short list of my blessings.  As you read them, I hope you'll think of your blessings.

How about you, When you stop and “count your blessings”, what and who comes to mind for you?

As Thanksgiving approaches, I hope each of us will pause and “count our blessings and give God thanks!”  May we all hear God’s call to be a part of our loving, caring church family and continue the tradition of sharing the story of God’s love.  I'm looking forward to seeing you in Church!


Love and Prayers,

Pastor Jim
