[i took this last Christmas]
tomorrow is thanksgiving.
a time to reflect and give thanks for those you love and for what God has blessed you with.
so many of us are blessed to have a loving family, a roof over our heads, and our lives. but we take for granted all the things that God has given to us. we dont even take time to actually thank Christ for all He did for us. He saved us from the torment of hell by dying on the cross and resurrecting three days later. He did the impossible . and we dont even take the time of day to thank Him for that.
here is the sad truth.
those who have nothing, literally little or nothing, are more thankful to be alive than those who have everything they ever wanted.
think about it: homeless people, orphans, third world countries, refugees, nursing home patient have something we will NEVER be able to get in a short time, and that is thankfulness.
its time to stop wanting more and more things and its time to start thanking Christ our Lord and Savior for what He has blessed us with.
think about it.
