Last night we had our annual Thanksgiving meal SNS (Saturday Night Supper) at Newman. While eating the most amazing food (Thank you Ana, Jenny and friends for the turkey, green beans, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries and pumpkin pie!), we had a chance to reflect on what we are thankful for… We usually take time to do this at Thanksgiving, but it’s a good habit to get into any time of the year. One suggestion is to take some time at the end of the day and reflect on how God was present during the day: What are you thankful for? What were some of the highs and lows of the day? How was God present in your day?
