Beautiful Gratitude

Amazing, isn’t it?– how we can come to a day of Thanksgiving with more trepidation that enthusiasm? I teach in a college where my students speak of Thanksgiving as an obligatory drudgery. And today I talked to Christians who are worried and stress-ridden about sharing the day with non-believers. OhOh, Beloved, when do we get to be happy? When do we get to have fun? When do we get to lay down the burdens of wrestling with a negative world?

Something has happened to me since I was in the Chicago and Wisconsin area a few weeks ago ministering-it’s a sort of inner wha-hoo thing– and I’ve been recording new brief meditations all about it which I’ll share with you… called RadioMarie … What a glorious thing the love of God is. (Please stay with me on my website https://mariechapian.com/ — )

Listen, whoever you are, enjoy this year’s Thanksgiving. I’ve spent a few of them alone separated from anything that remotely smacks of love or family (those things we associate with the Holidays)– and I’ve also spent some of them with people I don’t know– ah, here’s a question for you. Which would you choose? To be alone or to be with people who don’t care about you?

My point is, we create our own Thanksgiving. I hurl myself before the King of Kings in the utmost gratitude and thankfulness for His love, His goodness, His sweet, sweet Presence– There is nothing on this earth as happy as celebrating all

    The when I just read a blog, I’m hoping that this doesnt disappoint me approximately this one. Get real, Yes, it was my method to read, but When i thought youd have something interesting to state. All I hear is a number of whining about something that you could fix should you werent too busy trying to find attention.

  3. The following time I read a blog site, I wish that it doesn’t disappoint me as high as this one. I indicate, I recognize it was my choice to check out, but I really thought youd have something intriguing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whimpering regarding something that you could take care of if you werent too busy seeking focus.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks
