November – A Month of Gratitude
As we embrace the crisp air and the vibrant hues that November brings, let us also open our hearts to the profound messages of faith and hope embedded in this beautiful season. With only two months left in the year, it’s an opportune time to reflect on the gifts and blessings that have graced our lives, as well as to set our sights on finishing the year with grace and determination.
In the Book of Ecclesiastes, we are reminded that there is a time for everything—a time to sow and a time to reap, a time to weep and a time to laugh. As we enter this last chapter of the year, let’s remember that our days are in His hands, and that each moment presents an opportunity for growth, gratitude, and love.
For those who find themselves in the midst of challenging circumstances, grappling with the burdens of illness and uncertainty, remember that God’s love and grace are unwavering. Even in the darkest of times, His light shines through, offering solace and strength beyond measure. The journey may be taxing, but trust that He is with you every step of the way, offering comfort and carrying you through the storm.
To those battling the trials of cancer, know that you are not alone. Believe Big is here for you. Lean on your faith, draw courage from the stories of resilience in the scriptures, and find solace in the unwavering love of your community. Let this month be a reminder that even in the face of adversity, there is always room for hope, healing, and miracles.
As we approach the final stretch of the year, let us make a conscious effort to cherish every moment, to spread kindness, and to live each day with intention and gratitude. Let us be a source of strength and support for those in need, a beacon of hope amidst the darkness, and a reflection of God’s boundless love for all. May November be a month of renewed faith, unwavering resilience, and abundant blessings for each and every one of us.
Blessings and peace,

Tips to help create a more manageable and meaningful Thanksgiving celebration fostering an environment of support and gratitude:
- Prioritize Self-Care: Make self-care a top priority in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Ensure you get enough rest, eat nourishing meals, and engage in gentle exercises that promote well-being. Listening to your body and taking breaks when needed can help conserve energy for the Thanksgiving festivities.
- Plan Ahead: Consider planning the Thanksgiving celebration well in advance. Coordinate with friends and family to delegate tasks and responsibilities, allowing you to conserve your energy and focus on enjoying the day. Prepare a simplified menu, or consider a potluck-style gathering to share the load and foster a sense of togetherness.
- Embrace Gratitude: Take time to reflect on the blessings in your life, no matter how challenging the circumstances may seem. Cultivate an attitude of gratitude by keeping a journal or sharing moments of thankfulness with loved ones. Embracing gratitude can uplift the spirit and bring a sense of peace and joy, fostering a meaningful Thanksgiving experience despite the hardships.
