Thanks GIVING, rather than Thanks GETTING

This Thanksgiving my sweet family and I had the opportunity to travel to Branson, MO to help our Gateway Branson network serve over 1000 people a Thanksgiving Meal. It was AMAZING to see God’s love being shared with so many that night through willing volunteers! I must admit my attitude at first was not the best. A road trip on the week of our vacation with our 9 and 5 year old children didn’t sound restful. But it was the BEST thing we could have ever done! The biggest blessing for me was watching my husband, and our two children be those willing volunteers. This year’s thanksgiving was really more about giving than getting and we were blessed! Acts 20:35 says it perfectly, “…the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Image
