Thanksgiving Thoughts

As Thanksgiving approaches, I can’t help but think of how thankful I am for so many things that words can hardly describe my gratitude. I know that my family is blessed enough to come together with our loved ones during this time and share the comfort of one another, the memories of our loved ones that are no longer with us, and the new stories that each one of us are creating each day. And of course, I cannot forget to mention the menu, turkey and dressing, ham, potatoes, green beans, macaroni and cheese for the children, sweet potato casserole, to name a few. So I thought it would be nice to make a list of thoughts to ponder to get my heart opened and ready for this upcoming season.

Thoughts to Ponder:

1. Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with Thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:6.

2. Enjoy the meal and the company on Thanksgiving, no dieting for the day please!

3. Being Thankful is a major component to all healthy relationships, it is one of the healthiest emotions we can express.

4. No one ever died from being Thankful!

5. We should be Thankful for what we already have before we ask for more.

6. Forgive those who have hurt you and your heart will be Thankful!.

7. Our Thankfulness is often found in our giving to the less fortunate or those in need.

8. Be Thankful for all the people and pets in your life.

9. Being Thankful will keep you young at heart!

10. Give Thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, before I gather with family and friends, I am going to read this list and remind myself of how blessed I am. I will open my heart for the fourth Thursday of November to celebrate Thanksgiving with my loved ones, but all the while, not forgetting that I am equally thankful the other 364 days in a year, just blessed to get the opportunity to express it on this day in the comfort of my family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving!
