There is a time for everything under the sun

Celebrating  Him and His endless gifts of giving

Learning thankfulness for the endless blessings Christ gives us.


Take a look around ...  go ahead.  Somewhere you will find His endless gifts to you.  No matter how bleak things may look today—take a look around.  I bet you'll find something.  Actually, I know you will.  He's the gift giver.

The best way for us to see our endless gifts is to celebrate in what we have: What He's given us.

Thank Him in heart for the obvious

Sit back and ponder on the even smaller blessings...things,

the things you and I have the ability to take for granted ... overlook. 



The Bible tells us, "There is an appointed time for everything/  And there is a time for every event under the heaven— God has made everything appropriate in its time.  He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end."

Timing is important.  God  has a plan for all people.  Therefore, He gives us a life cycle.  It is up to us to find satisfaction in what God has given us to do.  Our attitude is everything. 


You will become dissatisfied  in life and work if you or I loose the sense of purpose God has intended for us.  We can enjoy our life...work when we remember

  • God has given us work to do
  • Remember that the fruit of our labor is a gift from Him
  • See our work as a way to serve Him
We will never be completely satisfied with our earthly pleasures and pursuits, why?  God has set eternity in our hearts.  We've been created in His image.  We have a spiritual thirst which gives us eternal value and nothing but an eternal God can truly satisfy that thirst. 





What is the purpose of life?  To praise and fear an all powerful God.  To fear God means we respect and stand in AWE of HIM because of who He is. 

We will not fulfill our purpose in life unless we first, fear God and give Him first place in our lives.

The best way to start is by CELEBRATING HIM and the endless gift of giving us opportunity after opportunity to do so.

Though we mess up much...He never fails to give His endless gifts of giving to those He love ...


Celebrating the present and passing it along !
