I can't help but think there are too many depressing things on the news. Life, the economy, death, the war..... it really goes on and on every night and day. It makes me wonder why news crews and broadcasts do a full program of downer news and then try to make up for it by putting some funny cute clip at the end of the show. It's like a breath mint after eating an onion, my mouth will taste fine for a bit but the first time I burp that onion taste is coming right back up.
This holiday season we have been trying to focus on how awesome God truly is and understanding how truly blessed we are. We will be using a couple of stories at our Thanksgiving services and First Sunday in Advent that are truly amazing. These people inspire and truly give you the sense that God has put us on this earth to live beyond our selves and for others.
Take a look at these videos and give thanks to God of all we are and can be and do.
