GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Okay, so, it's the Wednesday after Thanksgiving. Christmas chaos is about to launch into full swing. For some brave souls who took to the department stores on Black Friday; it has already begun. Sigh.
Stop. Breathe. Repeat.
Now that the Christmas (and Hannukah and holiday) season is nearly upon us and in the midst of all the shopping, baking, card-addressing, cleaning and wrapping, please remember what's really important: Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of State. KIDDING!
Love is the reason for the season. So, let that impatient lady have the last red sweater; give that grumpy old Gus the parking spot closest to the door; forget about the gal who nearly trampled you to get the last bag of cranberries at the market.
Let it go and offer compassion instead -- it's amazing how contagious a little kindness can be.
MT 4:18-22 - As Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.
