Every faith holds high the value of giving thanks. It is expressed
in our ceremonies, our celebrations, our worship, and in the
holidays we honor.
It is good to regularly pause and give thanks to our Creator.
In the midst of today’s delicate world situation there
is still much to be thankful for. Blessings are all around
for those who have eyes to see. Emerson once said that if the
came out only one night a year, everyone would be up all night
We tend to take for granted so many things and experiences
in our lives that we miss much of the flavor of life. We worry
the little things rather than being mindful of all that the
Lord has given us. If we live a spirit of thanksgiving for
blessings that are ours, both temporal and eternal, it is reflected
in how we treat others and how we deal with our responsibilities.
Living in a spirit of thanksgiving dispels sadness, brings
renewed joy to each day. Give it a try…you might be surprised.
Have a blessed holiday season!
