On Thursday, those of us in the US will be celebrating a day set aside to give thanks to God for all His blessings. Sadly, many people seem to believe it's just a day to enjoy a good meal, watch endless football games on television, & prepare to "power shop" the Black Friday sales : (
I've been thinking all month about God's blessings. Don't get me wrong ... I think about them all through the year. November, however, seems to make me think about them even more. Is my life a bed of roses? No. None of us have a life like that. We can, however, focus on what's good in our lives rather than what's bad. And there is always ... ALWAYS ... good to be found in our lives.
This coming Thursday ... while you're stuffing the turkey, baking the pies, setting the table, & cleaning up afterward ... really think about how God has blessed you. And be thankful. Be ever so thankful. A thankful heart is the best gift you can give to God, to the people around you, & to yourself.
I wish you a very happy & blessed Thanksgiving day!
