Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day and many people across this great land of ours will gather with loved ones and friends to enjoy delicious meals, watch football on television, and enjoy a day from work. Some will have memories of Thanksgivings past and loved ones who have gone on to their Heavenly home. Others will be creating Thanksgiving memories that they will look back on for years to come as they enjoy their time with those they love. Some will even be thinking about loved ones in distant places and looking forward to a time when they can be together again soon. And still others may find themselves alone and will attend a community “Thanksgiving” dinner and enjoy the fellowship there. The important thing is to realize that our greatest blessing is Jesus and because of Him our life has meaning and purpose.
The words “Thank” and “Think” hail from the same root word, reminding us that thanksgiving comes from thinking about our blessings and praising God for them . So, however you choose to celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, remember to take a few minutes to thank God for the tremendous blessings He provides for us every day of our lives.
Pam and I love you so much, and, as we do every day, tomorrow we will be thanking God that you are a part of our lives.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving, and I’ll have another thought for you on Monday.
