Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. It is about being thankful and appreciative for all that you have. It is about spreading love to others and helping those in need. It is about spending time with loved ones. I will be in the kitchen cooking in just a bit. You would think I would be making this elaborate meal, but in truth, it will be a simple meal for friends who have become family.
I will leave you with some quotes from others on this Thanksgiving day. May it be a blessed day for all.
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
We Give Thanks
Our Father in Heaven,
We give thanks for the pleasure
Of gathering together for this occasion.
We give thanks for this food
Prepared by loving hands.
We give thanks for life,
The freedom to enjoy it all
And all other blessings.
As we partake of this food,
We pray for health and strength
To carry on and try to live as You would have us.
This we ask in the name of Christ,
Our Heavenly Father.
From my house to yours, Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.
