Today we celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the United States! It is a day to be grateful for all the blessings our God has bestowed upon us. Gratitude is something we should express daily and truly is a lifelong attitude.
As we give thanks this day let us take time to think about the people, events and situations that cause us great joy. Let us also look at the things which make us struggle and take the time to look at them through God’s eyes. Thanksgiving is a good day to take some time to look at our lives and see the abundance of God’s grace in it.
God’s love for us is boundless and is always there for us. We are called to share that love with others. During this day of giving thanks I am grateful for all those who will serve others this day. Many have collected food and distributed Thanksgiving dinners to the less fortunate. It is these simple efforts that will change many lives today.
On this day let us give thanks for our families, our friends and all the good gifts we have received. Let our hearts overflow with joy and happiness and remember that all things are possible because of the God who loves us unconditionally. May this Thanksgiving Day be filled with many blessings, much happiness and tremendous love for you and yours. Happy Thanksgiving!
