It Is Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is here. To a family, or friend's home, you have been invited. You get all dressed up for the ocation. You get there and everyone is happy to see you. You greet everyone, than you just sit around talking and catching up on old news from family and friends. Dinner is almost ready. They are just putting on the last touches. Soon the Hostess calls, that dinner is ready. But first grace must be said to give thanks to God. A person has been chosen to do that honor. Everybody had agreed, before you got there that it would be you to do that honor. The question is - are you ready, are you you prepared to recieve this honor? Always be prepared, always be ready. We should always give thanks to God everyday of our lives. Give thanks for the blessings we get everyday - not only on Thanksgiving Day, or special ocations...

    I agree Luci, giving thanks for our blessings let us know we are indebted for all we have so this time of year just renews that pledge. Lovely verse.
