Wendy’s Window: “Give Thanks No Matter What”
November 22, 2018
As I celebrate this Thanksgiving, I am reminded of all my blessings; no matter what the year may have tried to throw my way.  Years ago I heard someone say, “when you stop and count all of the good things in your life, all the things you were spared from, all the things you didn’t have to check when you went to the doctor’s office, you can’t help but stop and think about God’s grace and mercy in your life and give thanks.”  There will be storms that come into our lives (external and internal), but when we get hit with various trials and tribulations, that is truly when we must stop and give thanks; no matter what. ... read more »

Success On “The Way” Ask Dr. Jeanette: “Sowing and Reaping the Harvest”
November 15, 2018
Thanksgiving and Daylight Savings Time are time buddies. I sought to know how slavery was progressing in related time frames. The custom of giving thanks for the annual harvest is one of the world's oldest celebrations and can be traced back to the dawn of civilization. We can find some times are determined Biblically by stating events, e.g. “harvest time”… American Thanksgiving tradition dates back to 1621;…not repeated until many years later…1789 George Washington proclaimed Thanksgiving a national holiday on Thursday 26 November that year - setting the precedent making it the last Thursday in November. ... read more »
