-Rev Melissa Fain-
I know people are not clamoring to visit Fig Tree Christian on Thanksgiving, to see what sage words of wisdom I have to share with the masses. I know this day can be stressful, and sometimes frustrating.
Let me leave you with something to consider:
If you are worried about whether the turkey is going to be too dry, or if you will be able to get back out to get that amazing Black Friday deal, there are bigger needs out there today.
This isn't to take away from your specific celebrations. Just take a moment and realize where our focus should go. Love your family, because whether they voted the same way you did, they are the only family you've got. Appreciate your meal, because it's there, and you get to share it with others. Remember, God's blessing is often found in the mundane. Don't overlook what you have.
