Thanksgiving 2019

We need Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving tends to realign our thinking and correct crooked attitudes. A mind directed toward thanks and gratitude should be our normal way of thinking. But, as you know, it doesn’t take much to knock us off course and we soon start forgetting to give thanks on ordinary days.

If you have a Topical Bible you can look up thanksgiving and/or other similar words and find many verses. Select some favorites and keep them handy. Here is a link to an online Topical Bible – Thanksgiving


“Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”  – Charles Dickens

“This way of seeing our Father in everything makes life one long thanksgiving and gives a rest of heart, and, more than that, a gayety of spirit, that is unspeakable.” – Hannah Whitall Smith

“Gratitude is an offering precious in the sight of God, and it is one that the poorest of us can make and be not poorer but richer for having made it.”  – A.W. Tozer

Happy Thanksgiving!
