Thankful…

The Thanksgiving holiday rapidly approaches this week, I find myself thinking of all the things I am thankful for. There are many.

At the same time I see so many things that make me wonder if some people are thankful for anything, or are they just feeling like they “have to” have next newest toy or the best deal on the day after Thanksgiving? Where is their thankfulness?

It is so sad to see the way the media, and really the corporations, try to get people to forget about Thanksgiving and even Christmas. Right now it’s all “Black Friday” deals and camping out to be the first in line. Next it will be “Cyber Monday” and then sales, sales, sales!!!

With their actions, those folks are giving up all of their family time to pad the pockets of those corporations. And the corporations are trying to eliminate the holidays and the real meaning of them. To see the importance of faith, family, friends, helping those in need, etc. to be diminished is heartbreaking.

While I am missing a great opportunity this Thanksgiving to help some friends from church host a Thanksgiving outreach, I will be with much of my family…giving thanks.
