Serenity amid Chaos

Looking ahead to Thanksgiving, some may already be forfeiting serenity just thinking of all the expectations of their families and vice versa. I don't believe serenity happens in an atmosphere of expectations. Here's a good one, however; I expect to make myself happy this holiday.

This can happen if you choose to be yourself while giving lots of grace to others who will be themselves for good or ill. Give yourself grace even if the turkey isn't done on time or you forget the cranberry sauce.

Speaking of grace...God's grace shed on America is why we celebrate Thanksgiving. His grace hasn't stopped in all these years to us as a nation or as individuals. Likewise, our thanks shouldn't stop either. May your day be stuffed with blessings!I know mine will be.
