I am blessed to live on Cape Cod for many reasons. But, in particular, I love the cool, crisp days of fall, when local cranberry bogs are bursting with vibrant colors and berries are waiting to be harvested.
Cape Cod is one of the country’s largest producers of cranberries, with over 14,000 acres of working bogs, despite being the sixth smallest state.
As Thanksgiving arrives, I am reminded of Psalm 67:6:
“The earth has yielded its produce; God our God blesses us.”
Whether we are celebrating Thanksgiving with loved ones
or friends … or if this year finds us alone, may we always have a thankful heart, no matter what is going on in our lives.
For God is always with us… to walk with us… to listen to us… to share our burdens… to lighten our loads… to give us courage to endure… hope to believe … and grace to sustain us.
May we be filled with God’s peace, joy and love …
and may we always share our faith… our bounty… and our harvest with others.
For this truly is the season of thanks and of giving.
