Finding Ways to be Thankful

Finding Ways to be Thankful

This is not the Thanksgiving any of us have planned for. We had hoped that the virus would be under control long before now. We dreamed of Thanksgiving meals with the people we love.  We longed that by now we would have a bit of normalcy in life. But that is not the Thanksgiving we have. Instead, the Thanksgiving we have includes in Arizona over 277,000 diagnosed with COVID-19, and more than 6300 families will have an empty chair at the table.

Thoughts from Matt – Signs of New Life and Hope

Thoughts from Matt – Signs of New Life and Hope

When it rains, it pours.  Last week, my wife Felida was looking on her Facebook page when she saw that her cousins in the Philippines were stranded on the second floor of their home during a terrible flood.  They had small children with them and were using Facebook to call for help.  Nobody could get to them, but thankfully the waters receded by the next day and they were okay. Last week, three separate typhoons hit the Philippines in succession, and so the Manilla area flooded.  This is nothing new, just as hurricanes are nothing new on the East Coast and Gulf Coast of the United States.  In fact, Filipino homes used to be built on stilts so that they could stay above water when the floodwaters came.  They aren’t built that way anymore, so residents know to just keep their heads above water and survive.

In this time of COVID, we feel like this pandemic will not end but, of course, it will. How can we get through this time? Some of us have not been to a worship service with our Christian siblings and we may feel like we have lost our family.
