Thanksgiving Blessings and Reflection – The Leo House Sends Blessings and Love to All
“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Thanksgiving blessings can be shared with your family and loved ones as we enjoy the most special meal of the year. As we look forward to feasting with loved ones this Thanksgiving holiday, let us keep fresh in our hearts and minds the spirit of gratitude. Let’s reflect on everything that we are so blessed to have surrounding us this season. Enjoy the excitement of the holidays, but let’s not lose sight of the meaningfulness of Thanksgiving and Christmas. All of us here at The Leo House are thankful for our many visitors and wonderful staff.
“If the only prayer we ever pray is ‘thank you,’ that would be enough.”
– Meister Eckhart
Gratitude encourages us to reflect on our lives. Furthermore, it empowers us to recognize that God is with us always, whether in joy or sadness, and never abandons us. Generosity is the essence of who God is and how God relates to us. The deeper we appreciate the endless generosity of God, the more we become like the God we love.
May an abundance of gratitude burst forth in our minds and hearts as we remember all the blessings in our life.
May Thanksgiving often be part of our prayer.
May we slow our hurried pace these days so we can be aware of, and enjoy, what we can too easily take for granted.
May we always be open, willing and ready to share our blessings with others and never forget the God who loves us lavishly and unconditionally.
May we remember that our thanksgiving is incomplete until we pay it forward by doing for others what they cannot do for themselves.
We pray this in the name of the God who creates us, redeems us and inspires us.
