Thanksgiving Day

One Thanksgiving Day a family was seated around their table, looking at the annual holiday Turkey. From the oldest to the youngest, they were to express their praise.WdWhen they came to the 8-year-old in the family, he began by looking at the turkey and expressing his thanks to the turkey, saying although he had not tasted it he knew it would be good.WdAfter that rather novel expression of thanksgiving, he began with a more predictable line of credits, thanking his mother for cooking the turkey and his father for buying the turkey. But then he went beyond that. He joined together a whole hidden multitude of benefactors, linking them with cause and effect.WdHe said, “I thank you for the Checker at the grocery store who checked out the turkey. I thank you for the grocery store people who put it on the shelf. I thank you for the farmer who made it fat. I thank you for the man who made the feed. I thank you for those who brought the turkey to the store.”WdUsing his Columbo-like little mind, he traced the turkey all the way from its origin to his plate. And then at the end he solemnly said “Did I leave anybody out?”WdHis 5-year-older brother, embarrassed by all those proceedings, said, “God.”WdSolemnly and without being flustered at all, the 8-year-old said,”I was about to get to Him.”Wd                                                            Author UnknownWd

How often have we left God out and not thanked Him for all the Blessings He has given us remembering only the benefits and not the reason why we have them. Wd How wonderful that you Americans have this Special day to say Thanks to God thank you for your example and may you all be greatly Blessed.Wd

Yes like  Christmas  it’s only a once a year Celebration but like Christmas it’s Truth is to be lived everyday in our hearts.Wd

  1. Reblogged this on Tricia's Journal Jots Blog and commented:
    Yes, how wonderful that we Americans do have Thanksgiving Day set aside to thank the Lord who has heaped blessings upon blessings on us. Unfortunately, much of Thanksgiving is now overshadowed by focus on financial gain or getting the best deals, to wit, Black Friday to Cyber Monday, starting the sales Thanksgiving morning or even the week before and ending some time around New Year’s Day. Nevertheless, for those of us who still remember that Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks to God and that Jesus is the reason for the Season, these days acknowledged are great reminders of the One from whom everything good comes. Thanks Anne for this excellent post.


    • Thank you for the Reblog Tricia it is very much appreciated. It is True as you shared about Thanksgiving Day and sadly Christmas has become the same. Some Christians even believe the Cults teaching, that Jesus was not Born at Christmas when Scripture confirms He was. But we as God’s Redeemed Children can share His Truth which is powerful to break down these strongholds.
