Today we spend with family and close friends. It’s all about the turkey dinner and pumpkin pie. The chilled eggnog and football. But it is also a day to give thanks to the Lord for all of the blessings he has bestowed upon us. Family, health, friendship, food, clothing, shelter, safety, love, education…the list goes on and on. It’s necessary for us to know that without God we would have none of it. In 2016 it is very hard to imagine not having these things. But there are millions of people living today that don’t have what we take for granted. Many in our own country are lacking the very basics of human need. So, enjoy the turkey, eggnog, football and family…but say a sincere thank you to the Lord for his blessings and whisper a prayer for those without.
