|THANKSGIVING IS ABOUT
James C. Guy
WHAT THANKSGIVING IS ABOUT
Thanksgiving is not about turkey and dressing, family and football. Thanksgiving is simply being thankful for what we have been given. Itís so easy to focus on all the things we DONíT have. Thanksgiving is to appreciate what we do have. It is not to worry about the future, but to appreciate the present. It is not regretting the losses of the past, but remembering the memories in the present. If things are going wrong, ask God to make it right, and thank Him for being there for you. Sure, it could always be better. But then, it could always be worse. God blesses us more than we realize, and often more than we take the time to thank Him for. Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God"
