To be Thankful

Well it's the week of Thanksgiving...already.  Time does fly by.  This is a wonderful time of year.  Crisp weather, comfort foods, cozy fires.  I love it.  This year we are hosting Thanksgiving dinner at our house.  I love Thanksgiving because it is a time to get together with family and friends and give thanks for all that God has blessed us with.  It is a day that is somewhat non commercial unlike all the other holidays out there.  I am thankful that we take one day every year to say Thank you God,  we are so blessed.  We should all take every day to realize what bounty we all have and how blessed we truly are.  I forget this day in and day out.  We have so much and there are so many out there with so little. 

So as this week goes on try to reflect on how blessed you really are.  Give your children a big hug and tell them how much you love them.  Thank God for your spouses, children, family and friends.  Pray for them this week.  In the hustle to get all the food on the table that is so wonderful take some quiet moments to say
"Jesus, I truly am thankful."
