Thankful for 85 Wonderful Years

June 5, 2023
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalms 103:2-5

Very seldom is something personal written about on this website but today my heart is so full of thanksgiving to God for giving me 85 years of a wonderful life.

I am thankful for my salvation. The opportunity to serve Jesus for 65 of those years. Especially, SOS Events Ministry for the last 21 years.

I am thankful for my wonderful family that has grown from just me, an only child to over 100 immediate family. That includes children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. 2 great, great grandchildren. This family always grows every year by adding new spouses and children.

I am so thankful for the many friends, some I have known for years and others are new.

Good health, home and most of all the promise of Heaven which gets closer for me every year.

Thank you to everyone who made my birthday so special. My heart overflows with gratitude. Carolyn Slater Curtis, Cofounder of SOS Events Ministry

Goodbye November!

November 30, 2022

The last day of November. How did you do on your month of thanksgiving?

Did you find something to be thankful for everyday?

It is a good thing to thank the Lord everyday all year long.

Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Psalms 106:1

Happy Thanksgiving!

Ephesians 5:20Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Thankful for God’s Word!

November 23, 2022

God’s Word, the Bible. His way of communication with us.

All the answers to life’s problems and concerns are found in the Bible.

Where did I come from? How can I know what to do with my life? How do I choose a spouse? What should my relationship be with my children? Neighbors? Friends?

Is there life after death? How do I get to spend eternity with God?

All of life’s questions are answered in the Bible. God wants to bless us and He does give us the answers, but we have to be reading, searching and understanding what He has to say to us in His Word.

Today give thanks to God for giving us His written Word. Then make it a priority in your life everyday.

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Thankful for Daily Bread!

November 22, 2022
Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11

How are you doing in your daily thanks to the Lord as we look forward to Thanksgiving Day.

On Thanksgiving we look forward to a great meal, turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing and the best part dessert. A true feast in most homes in America.

There are many people who are not as blessed as we are. Not only on Thanksgiving but everyday of the year. Hunger. They do not know where their next meal is coming from, maybe a soup kitchen or a charitable organization.

How about you? Are you truly grateful for your daily bread? Today, take time to thank The Lord for His blessing. Do not wait until Thanksgiving Day to give thanks.

Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11

Thankful for the Worldwide Web!

November 19, 2022
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15

Is the internet something to be thankful for? Yes!

It is true that there is a lot of evil that comes across on our computers, iPads and phones that we could have access to, but God always turns evil into good to reach people with the Gospel.

We have the privilege of presenting Jesus to the whole world through the web. Just this week, people from several countries have gotten on the SOS Events website and received the message of salvation.

Thank the Lord for all the people who have received salvation and have grown as Christians through the worldwide web.

Thankful for Light!

November 17, 2022

Waking up in the morning to a beautiful sunny day.

As darkness falls the lights in our homes allows us to enjoy the evening.

The lights of a city skyline at night. How we complain when electricity goes out, even for a few minutes or longer. Light is important.

The Bible tells us a lot about light. Jesus is the light of the world. Without Him we would be in total darkness spiritually.

His Word also tells us that as Christians we are light. He uses a candle as the illustration. Do not hide your light under a bushel. It is our responsibility to tell others of the wonderful light we have. Jesus.

Today, thank the Lord for His light and then share that light with someone.

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:15-16

Thankful for Privilege of Serving Our Savior

November 14, 2022

It is a privilege to Serve Our Savior with SOS Events Ministry. Thankful for every missionary, trainer and volunteer who has been a witness for the Lord Jesus in the last 20 years.

Thank the Lord for all the souls who have come for salvation and assurance in those years. Thank you all for your service for Him.

Thankful For Veterans!

November 11, 2022

Today is Veterans Day in the USA. A day to remember the brave men and women who fought so that we can live in freedom.

Also, a special thanks to the people who are in the military today.

We are free to choose our leaders, we are free to rear our children as we please, we are free to follow the path to any career we desire, and much more, because of the sacrifice of these men and women in the military.

Most of all we are free to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus, who gives us true spiritual freedom.

Philippians 1:3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you
