Thanksgiving Week

Here we are. It is Thanksgiving week!!!

I saw a meme the other day that went something like this…

October 1-31: Halloween

November 1-21: Christmas

November 22: Thanksgiving

November 23-December 25:Christmas

The sad truth is that, that is true. Thanksgiving has become just another day off. A day off to eat, watch football and prepare to spend/waste money on gifts that people will use for two days and then forget.

I am not going to sit here and tell you that I don’t enjoy the day off or that I don’t like eating. I try to watch as much football as I can without my wife getting too mad. And, yes, we do go Black Friday shopping. But, I do try to make it a goal to spend time in thanksgiving and thinking about everything that God has blessed me with and has done in my life.

We should make it a goal every day this week, to find something to be thankful for. Find something to be thankful for that is outside of the the norm, outside of the spouse, kids, house, food, car, etc. Find something that God has blessed you with in your life and thank Him for it.

Don’t get caught up in the hustle and bustle of this holiday season and forget to be thankful.

“In every thing give thanks….”
