November 17

I can almost taste the pumpkin pie right now! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and all the festivities surrounding this holiday are in full swing. Oh, but wait, what am I saying? We’re already in full swing for Christmas, and Thanksgiving is not even here yet! Candy canes, Christmas trees, and twinkle lights are already on full display! What happened to my favorite holiday? Have we forgotten it? Now, I know this is not a biblical holiday, but neither is Christmas! I love that we all pause with our families and speak out loud the things we are most thankful for. God has blessed all of us who live in the United States with freedom and plenty, but we sometimes take that for granted. That’s why we should never overlook this important holiday, and keep it centered around God and our thankfulness to Him for all He has done for us. Let the festivities begin!

Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! Psalms 100:4
