It’s that time again… where many of us free-write for five minutes on Fridays. We let go of perfection and just write. We aren’t concerned about punctuation, grammar, etc. We just write. And it’s beautifully freeing! We gather together and share at Kate Motaung’s place. I invite you to join the fun, either with your blog, or in my comments section below. Let your mind and fingers fly!
This weeks’ word:
I find it interesting how Dictionary.com defines Thanksgiving:
the act of giving thanks; grateful acknowledgement of benefits or favors, especially to God.
I spent the entire day with family. Our family celebrates it in what might just be the most non-traditional way. But it’s a tradition to us. Each year my family and my younger brother’s family all travel somewhere together for a few days. We find a Cracker Barrel and enjoy their annual Thanksgiving Day meal (it’s incredible!), we shop, we eat some more, and we just have a ball together.
This year’s adventure was no exception, except for it having to be cut short because of work this morning.
Oh, but what a beautiful holiday we had.
But, Thanksgiving is more about our hearts, our gratefulness to God, and our relationship with Him, than it is about how we spend the day.
Wouldn’t we be wise to celebrate thanksgiving all year long? I pray we don’t give thanks on just one day a year.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4
May we allow the spirit of Thanksgiving to live in and through us each and every day.
May we thank God throughout our moments, even the tough ones.
May He cultivate a grateful heart within us, that spreads out into the lives of others.
May we be known for our grateful attitudes.
May gratitude and giving thanks be just a way of life for you and for me.
Let me tell you, I’m grateful for you today. You give me great joy, just by being here, and by doing life with me.
I pray tonight for God to bless you, as you bless Him with your gratefulness! Have a beautiful weekend!
