Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
I know that there will be turkey and football. I know that some of us will pass out on the couch in a carb coma. But before we enjoy the traditions of the day, give thanks.
If you are reading this in the morning, stop and think of all the good things that God has done for you. Don't focus on the negative, those things will always be there. Choose to look up.
If you are reading this in the middle of the day. Take a few moments to tell someone that you are thankful they are a part of your life. Maybe you need to say it across the dinner table or across the country with a phone.
If you are reading this late in the day. Give thanks for what you have experienced. It might have been a great meal. Family fun or just getting to stop and think about your life for a few moments.
"Give thanks with a grateful heart, give thanks unto the Holy One, give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son." Give Thanks - Don Moen
PRAY: Dear Jesus, I am thankful for all you have done and will do for me. AMEN
