One of the qualms I have about the day, though, is just that: it is a day. Thanksgiving shouldn't be something done one day out of the entire year, or even one week or one season. It should be a moment to moment attitude of our heart. "In everything give thanks" doesn't sound like a one time thing to me. I don't know about you, but everything doesn't happen to me in one day!
If we continue in a state of thankfulness, how sweet life will be- we will make no room for bitterness or jealousy or anger or discontentment. I once heard it said that a truly beautiful person is a thankful person.
So, not just on Thanksgiving Day, but everyday I am striving for a thankful heart, by the grace of God. Will you not join me?
This post is sort of like a photo book of things I am thankful for. I'll bet you can guess what they are by just looking at them.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good,
His mercy endures forever.
~ Psalm 118:1
