You remember the classic 1939 movie “The Wizard of Oz” of course. Dorothy was whisked away to a dream world in the sky to do battle with the Wicked Witch of the West. Her battle was to return to her world, but first, she must find the Great Oz. She thought he was the only one that could get her home to the real world. And indeed, most of the movie Doro-thy was not even aware she was not in a real world until she woke up!

Every Christmas Season that comes around, we should be reminded of the glorious scene in the dead of night before a group of shepherds watching their flock. Luke 2:13-14 states: “And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.’” (NASB)

The Season of Thanksgiving is upon us. We will be encouraged just to “be thankful” and just “give thanks,” but to whom and for what? Being thankful necessitates several things; the first is that there is a need, the second is that the need is supplied and lastly, giving thanks to the one responsible for responding to the need, supplying relief.

October is one of my most favorite times of the year, the changing from Summer to Fall. All the changes that take place are just beautiful to me. The temperature moderates. There is a bite in the air in the morning.
