I believe that every day should be Thanksgiving. We should have some reason to be thankful every day. Being intentional in our thanks makes our burdens light.
Still, the day set aside as Thanksgiving Day has a special meaning to me and I look forward to it every year. For me it means reflection, family, friends, and lots of food.
Reflection on the goodness of God and all He has done for me and my family. It’s also a day I take some kind of stock of my year. Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season which wraps up the year nicely, so I reflect a lot of how good of a steward I’ve been of the talents God so graciously gave me.
It also means enjoying a wonderful feast and laughter with my extended family and friends. Catching up on things that slip by in rushed conversations during the hustle and bustle of life.
I am saddened however that in recent years the meaning of the day is getting lost in media hype and sales pitches. My prayer is that we remember what the day is really about…Thanksgiving Day.
