A Life of Thanksgiving…

A Life of Thanksgiving…
By: Christine E. Agaibi

This week millions of homes around America gather around the Thanksgiving dinner table and continue a tradition started in 1621 when the pilgrims settlers celebrated the First Thanksgiving after their first harvest in the New World. This week is also the official beginning of the Christmas season; a season filled with joy, peace, and thanksgiving.


As Christians, Thanksgiving should be a well-known principle. The Bible reminds throughout its pages to be thankful. In one example, St. Paul states in his Epistle to the Philippians (4:6), “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” In his first letter to the Thessalonians (5:16-18), St. Paul also writes, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” Additionally, the Coptic Agpeya has installed a Thanksgiving prayer as an opening prayer for all our services from Liturgies, to funerals, to baptisms. We also use this prayer in our private prayers and we teach it to our children from a young age. This prayer reminds us to, “thank [God] for every condition, concerning every condition, and in every condition.”

I'm Waiting 
By: B. M.

Recently, I was driving home and fighting with GOD...why things have to be so hard...Why do I have to fight for everything...  Why don't you throw me a bone. In case you are not sure what does that mean,  it means give me a break and give me an unearned favor. 

The next couple of days, I took my daughter to the river fishing.  She had a fishing pole and I had one. Her pole got stuck and I was “argh, already?!.” I fixed it for her and I went back to my pole.  I found it also stuck on something, I pulled and pulled at the end I found a string and a bone and weight (also called sinker).  

 
Because GOD talks to you in your own language. He pretty much told me in my own language: I heard you, here is your bone, and you still have to wait (weight).  The plan now is to wait and carry this weight to remind myself with GOD’s promise.

That is GOD’s sense of humor! Let us pray for each other’s.
