Well, it’s really Thanksgiving. But somehow that has turned into National Stuff Your Face with Turkey Day. We’ve lost sight about what this holiday is really about.
It really is about gratitude. It all started with those pilgrims who were thankful to still be alive after a treacherous journey across the sea and a brutal winter that followed. They were shell-shocked and grieving for all those they had lost, but grateful to God that they weren’t all dead.
So Happy Gratitude Day. May we be known as a thankful people as opposed to an entitled people or a complaining people. Give thanks on this day of all days for the incredible gift of life.
