Thankful Thursday


What I'm most Thankful for is people who stand up for what they believe. Those who aren't afraid to say "Jesus is Lord", "Jesus is the reason for the season", "Merry Christmas" ,"God bless America", "One Nation under God". Thankful for the kids who came up with "meet us at the Flag pole before School" so we can pray for our day. Thankful for all those who Pray in public places like Restaurants, I even prayed with someone in an isle at Wal-Mart once. (she said she needed prayer,I didn't think anything about praying for her or with her right there,but believe me I got told about it. And telling some one God bless you isn't wrong to me nor does it embarrass me. When Mike and I have dinner out we always pray just like we do at home. We've had some be kind and get quiet while we pray and we had waitresses set food in front of us while we were praying (she didn't get a tip, sorry,it's called respect for others) I have so much to be Thankful for.......... God and Prayer are the center of it all.
So as you read this you know by now someone got my goat and I'm venting. So please do Mike and I a favor.....When you're some where and some store clerk says "Happy Holidays" do what we do, say "Merry Christmas and May God bless". Let's keep Christ in Christmas not only this year,but always.
Love and God bless,
Glo

You know I just love this post! I'm so tired of everyone trying to be "politically correct". It doesn't hurt anyone to say Merry Christmas and we shouldn't have to stop our beliefs just cause someone else may or may not get their panties in a bunch. Good for you for standing up for what you believe! I love that and we should all do the same, then maybe they would back off and know we're serious and aren't going to be pushed around any longer. God bless you and yours!
