Well, it's that time again here in the good ole U S of A. The most ironic holiday that we still celebrate in our country. A day where we celebrate the bounty of God's goodness toward us.
A day to reflect on all of our blessings; To reflect and take stock of what the word blessed really means. A day to enjoy the presence of people we love and to just 'be'.
The day before the day the stores are filled to capacity with people spending money they don't have to buy things they don't need to impress people they don't care about to fill a void they don't think they have.
Ironic don'tcha think?
As for me, I will continue to be thankful that I am more than just flesh and blood and bones. I will be thankful for the ability to be thankful to a God that is real and that resides in my very soul. I will be thankful for you--my fellow planetmate--and the possibilities of hope and joy that were designed in you by God.
It's an easy choice to make... be thankful you have a choice.
