The Power of Thanksgiving

The Power of Thanksgiving 1

One of the most popular narratives in the Bible is the feeding of the 5,000 found in the Gospels. The pertinent portion of this story often overlooked is what Christ does before the miracle. The disciples told Jesus it would take a year’s wages to feed this many men, not including the women and children. Jesus responded with a question, “What do you have?” They presented him with a little boy’s lunch consisting of two fish and five barley loaves of bread. Jesus takes the two fish and the five barley loaves and gives thanks. After he blesses it and gives thanks, the little bit becomes more than enough to feed nearly 15,000 people. My point is, if you can learn to give thanks for the little bit, God will make sure you have more than enough.

Holiday Meals Made Easy with Get Dinner to Go

Holiday Meals Made Easy with Get Dinner to Go 1

There’s crispness in the air that is undeniably fall and I feel an excitement for things to come. The anticipation of seeing family and friends from far and near, football games to enjoy, parades to watch and delicious foods to eat is overwhelming. I love the thought of Thanksgiving. My family has a rich history of getting together for a large meal with a large crowd to go with it. Whether your family is big or small, daunting tasks await you. Arranging travel, packing bags, giving room assignments and more importantly assuring that the food will be great is always at the forefront of my mind.

Your Livelihood vs. Your Calling

Your Livelihood vs. Your Calling

What happens when the company you love does not love you back? Or, when you give 100 percent in the day-to-day race for your career and still leave the office feeling stuck, empty, overlooked and underutilized?

2015 Infiniti QX80

2015 Infiniti QX80

The Infiniti QX80 is a vehicle of contradictions and it always leaves me with mixed feelings. I’ve never been a fan of the exterior styling, yet the interior beckons with soft leather and wood trim. The V-8 engine guzzles fuel but it is extremely smooth and strong enough to tow 8,500 pounds. In summary, this full-size SUV shines from the inside out and delivers luxury on par with anything in its segment.

November is more 
than just Thanksgiving.

Yes. It’s November. And it’s Thanksgiving. People say time flies when you’re having fun. I say time always flies, fun or not. So, it’s that much more important to constantly give thanks, be it November or March, rainy or sunny, good times or bad. I think there’s something therapeutic about saying “thank you,” especially when people aren’t expecting it.
