When your days have felt like a whirlwind, sometimes it’s best to sit back and take in the bounty of blessings before you.
My week was somewhat hurried; trying to get all my clients coached, podcast episodes pre-recorded, and plans finalized for two days of goodness – the bounty of blessings.

Somehow with God’s grace and His strength, I pushed through all the messes and managed to arrive at the Thanksgiving gathering only 18 minutes delayed. Not too bad for us – as our bigger family always seems to straggle 1 hour behind schedule.
We enjoyed our time with lots of family – cousins as far down as 5th cousins, great aunts and uncles, and grandparents.
Later we gathered again the second day, with those who couldn’t join us on Thanksgiving.
Finally the darkness filled the sky but our hearts warmed forever, my mom said, “I’m just going to rest”. For her, it was to rest her weary body. She had been cooking for the past 2 days, serving and loving our big family.
Yet for me, I’m going to rest was more of a reflection. Sometimes we are looking for that special time. But every time is special. Earlier that day we sang Christmas carols around the black grand piano my father gave my mother.
Each one shared a favorite soung or played their instrument of choice. I heard my Uncle Joe play a song he wrote just a few weeks back in which his choir sang at Christ the King day at church.
The bounty of blessings are right before you. Looking for them in black Friday shopping sales, cyber Monday mania.
Trying to fill the voids in life are only filled through Christ Jesus.
As your year begins to wind down, I want you to think about the bounty of blessings before you.
How are you going to make them the center of your life instead of making the stuff the center.
