Some Thanksgiving Thoughts
Thanksgiving is finally upon us. And that means Christmas is closely following. Often we put so much of our focus on Christmas, we miss this important American Holiday.
I like that fact that thanksgiving is not about buying presents or decorating trees and homes, etc., but it’s about getting together with family and friends and doing what we all love-eating! And more importantly, it’s about giving thanks.
Thanksgiving was established by President Washington on November 26, 1789. It is a religious holiday started by the Pilgrims. The first Thanksgiving lasted three days, during which the Pilgrims feasted with their Indian guests.
The Bible says to us as believers:
Psalm 106:1 – “Praise the LORD! Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”
