We Gather Together
Thanksgiving is coming–that day when we all get together and stuff ourselves like turkeys, watch football, and play cards or board games with friends and family. But the holiday is much more. Yes, I love the food, the fun, the family. But I also love taking a focused time to set aside and be thankful for everything I have and take for granted: food, clothing, shelter, family, friends, good health.
When I was growing up, my Grandma used to set three pieces of candy corn at everyone’s place on the Thanksgiving table. Before we ate, we would go around the table and say three things we were thankful for. It was a time of blessing.
But giving thanks also creates a desire to share. I came across this article from Huffington Post and it reminded me what Thanksgiving is all about: sharing what we have with those in need. I hope we can all take time during this season of thanks to share. I am thankful to all of you for your support and encouragement. Have a blessed season.
