And here’s one thing that’s stopping us from being readily available to our children: worry.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18
Christmas gets a lot of hype – but Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. I love that it’s a time to bring family together, to eat a meal and be thankful. That’s it. There’s no pressure of getting the perfect gift for all your loved ones (and the not-so-loved ones – let’s be real!) and that awkward feeling of what to do or say when you get an especially weird gift from Aunt Mildred.
I have a Thanksgiving throw pillow that says: “There’s always something to be thankful for.” This is a spiritual truth. God calls us to be thankful in ALL circumstances, no matter what’s happening in us or around us.
