I am looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving Day this Thursday. The combination of time with family and lots of good food has great potential. Like many people, as Thanksgiving approaches I reflect a bit on my attitude and heart. Am I grateful for God’s presence and blessings in my life? Do I demonstrate this spirit of gratitude? One of my reflection points for this year has simply been “does my family know how thankful I am for them?” This is a good question for all of us. I want to live in such a way that my wife and kids would, without hesitation, say they know how grateful I am for them. Are we demonstrating this attitude of thankfulness consistently? If not, there is no time like the present to make a change.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
