The First Thanksgiving, painted by Jean Leon G...

Just as early Americans were thankful for surviving that first winter, let us also show thanks and gratitude for all we have received.

There seems to be more of an emphasis on Black Friday this season than on giving thanks for all the good things God has given us. Instead of wanting more and more “stuff”, let’s give thanks for all we have this Thanksgiving Day and everyday.

What are you thankful for? Family, friends? Warm home? Food? Clothes? Good health? Talents? Abilities? Connections? Sky, moon, stars? Trees, flowers, grass, sun?

Give thanks to God the Lord; upon His Name now call.
Make known among the people on earth what He has done for all.
Sing praise to Him, now sing; His wondrous acts proclaim.
Rejoice, all you who seek the Lord; come glory in His Name.

Lyrics by Susan H. Peterson

Best to you and your family,
