Taming of the Frizz: Thanksgiving Challenge

Mr. Curly had a great sermon on Sunday. He used several different passages to instill in us the importance of acting on our faith.

As James 2:17 says "Faith, by itself, if it is not accompanied with action, is dead."

And Mr. Curly even tied it in to Thanksgiving. He stated that we usually use this time of year to list all that we are thankful for, and that is important. It's important to acknowledge the blessings in our life. In Sunday School, the lesson of the month for the 1-3 year olds has been "Thank you God for my family." Sunday, Curly Girl stated she was thankful for Jesus. It was a great thing to hear.

But what about those that don't have so much to be thankful for? Mr. Curly challenged us to open our eyes, look around us for those whose thanksgivings are much smaller, and help in some way. Give them something greater to be thankful for.

So I'm passing it on. This week, as we all rush around trying to create the perfect Thanksgiving, take a moment from your own frizziness to see someone else's. And pass along a few blessings.
