thanks

So I was talkin’ to a friend the other day whose son is about five years old and this young fellow made an astute observation about Thanksgiving… “Thursday is Thanksgiving, we will have to be thankful.”
I think that my experience tells me that this young fellow is expressing that which is very normal for us: not having an attitude of thankfulness. That’s why it is good that we have a holiday that allows us to stop and be thankful. In the West, we have so much to be thankful for, but all of us have so much to be grateful for, the heartbeat, the breath, these involuntary functions that we hardly ever consider.
Let’s be grateful for we have been provided with life, and for so many of us, a life of abundance. Life is a great gift, it is Grace, from Him that came to be the Life and Light of men.
