So, Thanksgiving is fast approaching! Thanksgiving week is always nice because a lot of us have the week off of school and such. Thanksgiving is a time to get together with loved ones and eat way too much good food. ;)
But is that what Thanksgiving is really all about? Like is really about having a "feast" and seeing relatives and other loved ones?
I know you guys are all familiar with the first Thanksgiving, but let's take a fast review.
The Pilgrims came to America is hopes of finding freedom to worship the Lord how they felt was right. They endured a very hard winter in which many of them died of disease and starvation. But then after that, God sent some Indians to help them plant food, learn how to hunt and fish, etc. By harvest time, they had been so blessed by such a plentiful harvest that they decided to have a feast and thank the Lord for everything He had done/blessed them with in this new country. Ever since then, people have celebrated Thanksgiving.
So, isn't Thanksgiving really a day to meditate/thank God for all He has provided us with, done for us, etc??
This Thanksgiving why don't we meditate on all the things God has done for us and blessed us with. Count your blessings. Be thankful. Happy Thanksgiving!!
