This is one of my favorite holidays because it gives me an opportunity to pause, take a break from the routine of my busy life, and simply practice gratitude. Let me encourage you to use this day of Thanksgiving to set aside a time to lift your heart and hands in unfettered praise to Jesus. Intentionally give Him the things that weigh you down and receive His crown of joy in place of your sorrows. Then, take the glory of His presence to others by regularly blessing them with the gift of gratitude.
Never overlook an opportunity to say “thank you,” whether to your spouse, children, or to a stranger, and be quick to offer a sincere affirmation or heartfelt compliment. As you gather with friends and family today, seize the chance to bless them in the same way your Savior blesses you!
From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving, and remember as always… God loves you, and so do we.
