It’s almost Thanksgiving! How can that be? Didn’t we just celebrate Easter a few weeks ago? The world seems to be spinning faster as the mind spins slower. Anyway, it’s that time of year to give thanks, or for some, to make a big show of it, but every day of the year is a time to give thanks. Every time you open your eyes to a new day, in the land of the free, in a safe home, with food in the fridge, is a time to give thanks. Every day you’re able to sit, stand, walk, drive a car, is a time to give thanks. Every meal you are fortunate to eat, is a time to give thanks. I’ve had people question me for saying grace at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Well, I’ m just as thankful for breakfast as I am for lunch as I am for dinner. Can we ever truly thank God enough for all He has done for us? What did Paul say in 1 Thessalonians 5:18? ” … In EVERYTHING give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” Giving thanks keeps us humble and humility is in short order these days. Give thanks, realizing and admitting all of God’s blessings in your life. I can’t imagine not having His hand upon my life. Don’t make Thanksgiving just a yearly holiday. Okay, maybe you can only take all your relatives a whole day once a year, but every day should be a day of thanksgiving. Maybe every day isn’t perfect, maybe there are health issues, financial issues, but if your heart is in His hands, He will see you through them. Enjoy the holiday with Aunt Mabel and cousin Itt, sharing love and large quantities of food, and then for the next 364 days, with a grateful heart, give thanks!
