How good it is to give thanks…. today we took time to think about the everyday things we take for granted, there are so many of them which we use day by day often without a second thought. We gave thanks for our food, family and friends, for our churches, clubs, associations, for our schools, our shops, our town services and all those who contribute to the life of the Knaresborough community.
During the coming week we will be delivering thank you cards to the local businesses to thank them for the contribution they make to our town – we often do not stop to give thanks for the fact that they are open 5, 6 or even 7 days a week to provide a service to us, they serve us with a smile on their faces and nothing is ever too much trouble. Our streets are cleaned, the lights are on when it becomes dark and the flowers are always beautiful. There are so many people, far too many to mention, to whom we give thanks for making our town a friendly and welcoming community. We are grateful, we are thankful.
Our service was followed by a wonderful lunch where we shared fellowship with one another.
