30 Days of Thankfulness Day 28

I often post a list of all the things for which I’m thankful on Thanksgiving. But, in an effort to get back into the habit of daily blogging, I’ve decided to do a post a day for the month of November.

28. Thanksgiving

I *LOVE* having a time of year where everyone focuses on the things for which they’re thankful. I love feasts and family and gathering and traditions. I love that until just the last couple of years, Thanksgiving was just Thanksgiving and nothing commercial or corporate. I love that there are people who seek out ways to serve today, at soup kitchens and missions around the country. I love that the roads were full of travelers yesterday heading to homes and families.

That said, I’m sad, as I type this, because when I got to my parents’ house last night and saw a commercial (which I never see at home, so I’ve been in ignorant bliss) that stores are opening at 5PM on Thanksgiving for Black Friday early birds. That sucks. And, I’m using this platform to exclaim how much that sucks.

But — aside from that, I think Thanksgiving is a beautiful time. I pray that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and in a moment of quiet prayer or meditation, give God thanks.

Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations. ~Psalm 100
