That Thanksgiving Feeling

Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving. My in-laws joined us for a feast and we went around the table saying what we were thankful for.

Now Thanksgiving is over, it's Black Friday, and people are gearing up for Christmas. It's important, though, to remember to give thanks even after the holiday is over. Being thankful isn't a once a year thing. It should be an everyday thing.

Here's a little inspiration to help us all remember to be thankful:

From Henry David Thoreau...
"I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual…O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment."

From Kiggundu Wilson...
“Promise yourself to wake up every morning with a thankful,
heart as though each day was thanksgiving day.”

From W.T. Purkiser...
"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving."

From Ann Voskamp in One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are...
“Eucharisteo—thanksgiving—always precedes the miracle.”


What will you give thanks for today?
