Thanksgiving?

This week of Thanksgiving, people recite their list of thankfulness. They smile and share stories of how much they have and how much it means.

But if you sit and watch, it seems like just words. The dad, who is thankful for his job, complains on the way there. The mom, who is thankful for her kids, yells for no real reason. The kids, who are thankful for their home, long for more, better, and newer toys.

True thankfulness is more than just a list of words at Thanksgiving.

Ending the Stealing of Thanksgiving by Ann Voskamp, spoke of what Thanksgiving is. Read it.

we will give thanks to God not because of how we feel, but because of who He is. (Ann Voskamp)

Happy Thanksgiving.
