Thanksgiving Pieces

In the U.S. we celebrate Thanksgiving on November 26th.  It is a day to gather friends and family together, share a meal, watch football, go to a movie, nap.

But like many major holidays, oftentimes the true reason for the season is forgotten underneath the pretty packages, music, traditions and favorite foods.

It should not be remembered as the day before the biggest shopping day, or the day of endless eating, but instead – gathering together as the pilgrims did once, after landing here — in their new home.

Psalm 100:4 Go through his open gates with great thanksgiving; enter his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name.

Psalm 7:17 Oh, how grateful and thankful I am to the Lord because he is so good. I will sing praise to the name of the Lord who is above all lords.
What are you grateful for?
I am thankful to have a Heavenly Father who knows me, I am grateful for my family, friends, and those I do not know – I pray for all.  I am grateful for the technology that helps keep me alive (pacemaker), and my sweet dog Max!

Pieces of Contentment

Are we ever really content?  Do we go from one thing to the next?  Is our calendar perpetually filled? Do we believe that tomorrow will be better instead of focusing on what is good today?

Psalm 39:5-6  My life is no longer than my hand! My whole lifetime is but a moment to you. Proud man! Frail as breath! A shadow! And all his busy rushing ends in nothing. He heaps up riches for someone else to spend.
Psalm 17:15 But as for me, my contentment is not in wealth but in seeing you and knowing all is well between us. And when I awake in heaven, I will be fully satisfied, for I will see you face-to-face.
