“Some people are substituting ‘Turkey Day’ for Thanksgiving. I think it must be because they are not aware there is anybody to thank, and the most important thing about the holiday is food. Christians know there is Somebody to thank, but often when we make a list of things to thank Him for we include only the things we like.
We are meant to ‘give thanks in everything …’
Thanksgiving is a spiritual exercise, necessary to the building of a healthy soul. It takes us out of the stuffiness of ourselves into the fresh breeze and sunlight of the will of God.”
