Thankgiving


Just wanted to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving I will be busy with school Monday and Tuesday and trying to get my boys packed and ready for their trip with their dad to NC., then Wed, Dylan and I are head to Operation Christmas child to work with our local 4-H! I love doing this its great fun and a great way to start the holidays.
Speaking of holidays do you know what holiday means? It means holy day, a day to show reverence. So this Thanksgiving lets remember the real reason this holiday exist, its not for the feast, family, football and friends. But its a day to show thanks to our heavenly father for ALL that he has given us not just on Thanksgiving but everyday throughout the year. This world has taken Christ out of this holiday, most call it turkey day and most just think about the feast. Many years ago our founding fathers set this day aside to pray, read the Bible and give thanks to God for his blessings he had given them each year, so this year don't just say a prayer over the food to eat, truly give thanks to God for all your blessings! Happy Thanksgiving!
