Reflecting on America's Blessings on Thanksgiving

Many of us seem to forget how very blessed we are here in America. Even our President referred to us as being "lucky" in his Thanksgiving address this year. I'm sorry, but I disagree with that assessment of America and the American people. I do not believe that "luck" has anything to do with our prosperity and our greatness. I tend to believe in the facts about our nation and one of those facts is that we are a "Christian Nation".

We are indeed a "blessed" nation. Furthermore, those blessing have all come from God. The fact is that our country was founded on Christian principles. There have been many in the progressive camps for over 100 years who have worked tirelessly to distort the truth about our nation and our nations founders. However, the truth is there if you care to look and the truth has no agenda.  

I know, I know, not all Americans are Christian and many have no religious beliefs at all.  I'm fully aware of the diverse nature of this country and appreciate that these differences in people are part of what makes this country the greatest country in the world. Simply being able to worship in anyway you chose or being free to not believe is again a testament to the freedom that so many Americans have fought and died to retain.

In so far as my personal life goes, I feel blessed every morning when I awake. As a real estate agent in Lawrence, KS, I've been directly affected by the housing market crash and have experienced a decline in income. That does not mean that I'm not blessed beyond measure. Sure I may have to work a little harder to sell the Lawrence Ks Homes for Sale I have currently listed and my clients may be stretching their patience muscles more. I've still helped many sellers achieve success this year and have assisted many buyers in finding just the right Homes for Sale in Lawrence KS.

Now perhaps many people will claim that much of my real estate success is simply a matter of luck. Here again, I would disagree. I believe everything good that happens to me is God blessing me. I love the Thanksgiving holiday. It reminds me to be thankful for my blessings now and all year long. May God continue to bless America!

A Veteran’s Day Tribute to Home

I really enjoyed this article and wanted to share it with you. It's not often enough that we celebrate the profound sacrifices our men and women of the armed forces have made and continue to make everyday for us. God bless them and their families.

Let's all try to keep them in our thoughts and prayers everyday and please take the time to tell them "thank you" if you see a soldier in a bank, a coffee shop, a grocery store or even at an open house of one of the many Lawrence KS Homes for sale.
