On Top of the Fencepost

Alex Haley, the author of "Roots," had an unusual picture hanging on his office wall. It was a picture of a turtle on top of a fence post.

When asked, "Why is that there?" Alex Haley answered, "Every time I write something significant, every time I read my words and think that they are wonderful, and begin to feel proud of myself, I look at the turtle on top of the fence post and remember that he didn’t get there on his own. He had help."

That is the basis of thankfulness - to remember that we got here with the help of God, and that He is the provider of every blessing we have.

Question: Are you proud of yourself? Are you grateful for what God created in you?

Are you grateful for folks who assisted during your journey?

"Do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers". Ephesians 1:16

Prayer : Heavenly Father, I thank You for placing folks in my life to cause me to become successful. You have made things possible, yet as I am obedient to You, all things work together fir my good. Amen!
