Thanksgiving Song

Holiday expectations don't always meet holiday realities.   I pray for a Thanksgiving that will exceed your expectations and for a heart grounded in gratitude.  

My grandpa would literally pile his food onto his plate into a mishmash of Thanksgiving glory.   "It's all going into the same place anyway," he'd tell his delighted grandchildren.   As you take time to be thankful today remember that it's all going to the same place anyway, the throne room of our Maker, Creator, Savior and  Comforter.   He is the God of all even of those who don't call him God.  
Sing His Thanksgiving song.  Give Thanks.

A few words from Scripture:
I Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
I Thessalonians  5:18
in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Thanksgiving Song - Mary Chapin Carpenter
