Happy Thanksgiving to All:
 
This month as we try creative ways to show our thankfulness, I hope that you will each take time to give thanks everyday to God for all that he has given you. God encourages us to show that thankfulness by giving to others, whether it is a phone call, a card, spending time in Bible Study, giving to the Red Bird and Operation Christmas Child shoe box missions. There is an abundance of opportunities all around us to give just as God has. We each have something to give even when we think we don’t and this poem captures it perfectly!!!
 
Blessings to You All,
Pastor Leon
 
When Giving Is All We Have
By: Alberto Ríos – 1952-

 
One river gives Its journey to the next.
We give because someone gave to us. We give because nobody gave to us.
We give because giving has changed us. We give because giving could have changed us.
We have been better for it, We have been wounded by it—
Giving has many faces: It is loud and quiet, Big, though small, diamond in wood-nails.
Its story is old, the plot worn and the pages too, But we read this book, anyway, over and again:
Giving is, first and every time, hand to hand, Mine to yours, yours to mine.
You gave me blue and I gave you yellow. Together we are simple green. You gave me
What you did not have, and I gave you What I had to give—together, we made
Something greater from the difference.
