Cherish Times With Loved Ones by Sonya

Going into the Thanksgiving season, it causes me reflect on the several loved ones that have passed away in the last year and being the thankful for the time I had with them! These grandparents were precious to me and I cherished the time we spent together. They taught me so much about life and to always look at the glass half full and embrace all of the goodness that life has to offer. Loved ones are a gift and blessing from God and so thankful for the time I had with them as they lived a full life. Our family was able to share a lot of memories with them over the holidays and our visits to go see them and hear all their stories. Theses stories made me realize that time was precious and that is one thing you can give to loved ones that mean the most to them is “your time.”​Taking the time to spend with the ones you love is a gift and you can’t get it back. I felt many times God nudging me to go see a loved one and when I did God filled me up in ways that I can’t explain. That time allowed me to refocus on what is important and pause in the busyness of life and focus on the ones that really matter. Investing this time in your loved ones is so essential and blessing as God has surrounded us by so many people that do care about you.  This Thanksgiving, really take the time to spend with the ones you love and tell them how much they mean to you! Alot of times we take our family and friends for granted and they don’t know how much we appreciate them. Don’t miss out on those opportunities to love on them and care for your family and friends that are close to you. God has given them to us as a gift and lets celebrate that gift this holiday season. ​”Not neglecting to meet together, as in the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:25
