Being Thankful

For me, the holiday season begins with Thanksgiving.
With all of the emphasis on Black Friday and retail sales, it is far too easy to forget the reason for the season. Celebrations, gifts and visits with family and friends are a wonderful part of this time of the year.
I remember, several years ago, around this time of the year, while speaking with a young lady: she was disappointed because she failed to close a deal she was attempting to complete. As we spoke, it didn’t take her long to respond to her own emotions by saying: The most important thing is to keep Christ in Christmas!
She realized that the joy and blessings of the season were more significant than her temporary disappointment.

So, as we enjoy visiting, breaking bread, shopping, decorating and caroling; let’s thankfully remember God’s blessings and share them.
Although we sometimes endure hardships in life, we also experience joy. Let us share some of that joy with others.

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Colossians 3:17 (KJV)
