Appeal to Assist Financially During Christmas Holiday
Warm Holiday Greetings!
With the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays just around the corner, we are taking this opportunity to send a note to all who attend here at (NAME OF CHURCH) so that we might share a very special way to get involved in being a blessing to someone in need.
As you know, this time of year not only is a tremendous time of celebrating our thankfulness to the Lord as well as celebrating His birth, but even in the midst of all the festivities that take place, we are often reminded of the difficulties people go through as well. While the intention for families is not usually the desire to “keep up with the Jones’s” so to speak, there is a desire on the part of parents to bless their children with a few gifts.

We are looking forward to a wonderful service the Sunday before Thanksgiving as we take time to appreciate and express our thanks to the Lord for His bountiful blessings in our lives.
I’m reminded a bit about a tremendous story in the Bible Luke 17:11-19 where Jesus healed 10 lepers. Yet, while 9 of the lepers went their way rejoicing in their healing, only 1 of them in fact turned around to go back to express his thanks to the Lord for the miracle that had taken place in his life.
Imagine that! 1 out of 10 said thank you! We are often so quick to correct and instruct our children when it comes to the importance of saying “thank you”, but you and I are challenged on a weekly basis, and yes, even daily to express our love and appreciation to the Lord.

Psalm 107:21-22 (KJV) 21 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
Once again, it’s that time of year when we express our thankfulness to God for the wonderful blessings He has bestowed upon our lives in so many ways.
For the most part, we recognize that thankfulness is something that is taught over time. As Children grow, one of the most important lessons we can teach them is to say “thank you”, which of course is a great help to them as they mature and grow.

What a wonderful time of year it is as we once again draw near to the time we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Yet, even though we are faced with Christmas marketing earlier and earlier each year, there is still a wonderful Holiday that comes in prior to Christmas called Thanksgiving. Yes, it seems like the world is somewhat ready to brush this day aside, Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view and/or copy full text!
The Bible gives us an amazing command, and to be honest, one that I personally have struggled with from time to time. I believe after I share the scripture, like me, you will have to confess you’ve probably fallen short in this area a few times as well.
