Is this really what it is all about?

Was our giving thanks only as deep as the ladle in the turkey gravy?

The truth that all good things come from above and the recognition of this erupted into the first Thanksgiving.

Abraham Lincoln many years later in 1863 grounded us in the soil of this gratitude by declaring Thanksgiving a national holiday.

Want to transform the world?

Slow down and walk in thanksgiving and praise.

  1. This is so good. I try to be thankful for all things in my heart to God daily. Even the ups and downs. Somehow by the end of the day they all work out. Is that not the God we love? God Bless, SR

  2. I think when we thank God for the downs of our day that’s when we are really offering a “sacrifice of praise” and yes it seems by covering them with thanksgiving they do work out…maybe because we have invited God into them. God Bless you SR!
