Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.
A sign of the times…
Thanksgiving dinner has always been a big feast at our house. It still is. However, I do realize that for many it’s just like any other day. Some don’t have a family to share a meal with and others don’t have much food at all in their homes, let alone a feast. I am thankful to have family and friends to share a meal with.
One of the signs of the times seems to be that there are few and fewer dinners spent around the family table. Less and less time is being spent with family.
Food has always played such an important role in our lives, from Biblical manna from heaven to today’s fruit on the vine. It’s not just a coincidence. Food is something everyone can understand. We all need to eat. I think that food and faith are closely bound. And so are we. Sharing a meal is perhaps the most important things people can do together as a way to celebrate our humanity, our sameness despite our differences, and our hunger for community.
Maybe we could all make our life a sign of the times, a sign of joy and hope for each new day.
My thankful list - Day 14

Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.
