The Pilgrims’ religion dominated their everyday lives. In spite of brutal living conditions, they celebrated the first Thanksgiving in 1621.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-2: “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. Time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.”
Today people around the globe pause…to tell Mom thanks. Thanks Mom for all you have done and continue to do. Today is your day, soak it and enjoy yourself if you can.
May God bless you this day and forever?
1 Chronicles 16:8
King James Version (KJV)
Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.
What are you most thankful for (today)?
It is another Thanksgiving Day, and as usual, I am excited. All across America people are visiting family and friends to celebrate the big day. There is going to be lots of eating and drinking and merrymaking.
But, amidst all that eating and drinking, I encourage you to pause awhile and think about how fortunate we all are to live in the USA. Despite of its problems, and there are many, it is good a time as any to be an American.
Naturally, It would not be Thanksgiving Day if I did not put a ‘thank you’ list together. There are so many things to be thankful for. The world would run out of paper and ink by the time I am through jotting down my blessings. Nevertheless, number one on my list is “spared life.”
I thank God for keeping me alive. Being alive with all my faculties intact means I have another chance to prepare for the Bridegroom. God has given me more than my fair share of chances to prepare for His appearing. Therefore, if He comes today and I am not ready; I have no one to blame but myself.
I thank God for my family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, my employer, and all those people whom I come in contact with on a daily basis. And last but not least, you, my friends in the blogosphere. You mean more to me than you will ever know. I pray the good God above will continue to bless and keep you.
Happy Thanks Giving! God blesses.
