I Have a SERIOUS Bone to Pick

My Mother’s Table -2008



What happened to Thanksgiving?
Can someone tell me?
Case in point–I landed on a blog quite by accident of leaving a friend’s spot—and the blogger was saying goodby to halloween and hello to Christmas.
Sorry.  But that’s not the way it is kiddo.  (I can say kiddo—I am older.)
There is a wonderful holiday tucked in the middle.  It begins with a thankful heart.
I also noticed yesterday —on the Hallmark Channel—they will begin the Christmas countdown on Monday.  Uhmmm–do you see what I see?



The Desserts!

 
They counted down the days (of all the crazy things) to halloween—and are planning their countdown to Christmas—but hey! 
WHAT ABOUT THANKSGIVING???

I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:  That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works. Psalm 26:6-7

I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.  Psalm 69:30

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.  Psalm 95:2

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, [and] into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, [and] bless his name. Psalm 100:4  (all KJV)

Okay.  I am trying to calm the severe hot flash that just overtook me.  It just happens when I realize people are leaving OUT Thanksgiving. 

There are so MANY things I have to be thankful for!

  • A wonderful husband
  • Precious children and grandchildren
  • Incredible family
  • The whispers of God in my heart
  • Food in my pantry
  • Dirty clothes to wash
  • Shoes without holes
  • Running water at the touch of a faucet
  • Drinkable running water at the touch of a faucet (read the mission trip to Honduras)
  • FRIENDS (past-present and future)
  • SISTERS (in-laws included)
  • BROTHERS (in-laws included)
  • MUSIC–Worship songs–Praise songs–and jumpin’ up house cleaning songs! (those would be UP-BEAT)
  • THE WORD (and the ability to read my Bible anytime-anywhere–not possible in many foreign Countries)
  • SAVATION AND HOPE
  • HEAVEN
  • Answers to prayers
  • GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
