What do you think of when you hear the word “Thanksgiving”?
Does your mind go to Native Americans or Pilgrims? Do you think of holiday traditions? Pies and turkey and dressing and cranberry sauce?
Or do you think of giving thanks daily in every circumstance to God our Father?
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV84)
Maybe you think of all of the above. I do..
That’s fine.. As long as you think of thanks giving.
We have 2 weeks until Thanksgiving day. This year has flown by. Let’s be sure that we slow down during these holidays coming up. Slow down and take time to give thanks every single day.
Eyes are always watching.. Are they seeing an attitude of gratitude?
I’ll be honest. I have room to grow as well..
This week has flown by in a blur for me.
I’m thankful for:
1) Good health.. Because the nasty virus hit out home earlier this week.
2) My husband.. He stayed home to take care of me when I was sick.
3) Loving & caring & praying friends and family!
4) My car is now paid for in full! Last car payment made today! AMEN!
“Gratitude consists of being more aware of what you have, than what you don’t.” –-Unknown
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. (Psalm 100:4 NIV84)
What are you thankful for?
Would you share with me ONE of your favorite Thanksgiving day memories? A tradition or memory?
Mine is going to my Papa and Granny Peavey’s on Thanksgiving and spending time with all of my family & cousins..and playing a game of football with them. 🙂 There were only 3 of us girls and 8 boys and they let us play. 🙂
Until Next Time,
