Good morning.

It is easy to take the actions of those close to us, family and friends, for granted. We are also quick to feel like our love and actions are not appreciated.

It is always a beautiful thing to do for someone to express thanksgiving for something they did for you, for their friendship and love.

Paul's letter to the Philippians is, more than anything else, a thank-you note. This was a letter between friends, a note of gratitude from a proud spiritual father.

Paul wrote this letter while he was in chains. Despite what he was going through, he chose to focuse on God and others. He was able to recognize God's love, grace, and mercy at work through the Philippians.

In the midst of intense hardship, Paul remembered what was truly important in this world . . . the people God has placed in our lives.

Let us not forget those who walk with us. Let us show them appreciation and remember to lift them up in prayer to the Lord.

As we focus on thankfulness and the blessings God has placed in our lives, even during hard times, our attitude will change! Our focus will shift from the hardness of our circumstances to the blessings of our family and friends, and the goodness of our God!

God bless each one of you today.
