Thanksgiving: The Forgotten Holiday

Just as many enlist the help of an advent wreath to prepare for the celebration of Jesus' birth in December, you might want to focus on thanks-giving this November by following these simple tips.

Give Thanks

God loves to hear us. He takes great pleasure in receiving our thanks and our love.

In All Things, Give Thanks

Thankfulness is not a once a year novelty. It’s not to be put on once a year like our reindeer holiday sweater!

"Tanks!"

"Tanks" is perhaps my favorite childhood mispronunciation. At a young age my son appeared so excited and appreciative of everything, especially time spent with him. My boy still says thanks but not with the same enthusiasm.

My First Real Thanksgiving

We are like the pilgrims and this world is not our final destination. Let's be thankful for God's love!

Gratitude with an Attitude

Every year most of us say we will have a change of heart and be more loving and giving. Now it's time! We must humble ourselves to the reality that "it's not all about me" and adopt a new attitude.

The Unexpected Thanksgiving Feast

Jesus Christ makes a place for all of us at his table. Who can you invite to your Thanksgiving feast?

Who Ate My Pumpkin Pie?

“Somebody ate my pumpkin pie!” Conversation stopped and heads turned. Our Egyptian friend Hassan pointed to the end of the dining room table. “It was right there, and now it's gone!”

Over the River and Through the Woods

How about this Thanksgiving, we truly “give thanks” for our family members…as they are! And we learn to look past each other’s faults, as we ask God for hearts of compassion one toward another, he then opens our eyes to the unique worth of each person.

Resting Thankful

My young son had the faith to pour his little heart out to God in thanksgiving, for even the smallest treasures, and now could rest secure in the love of the Father. I wondered why I often fail to do the same.

Attitude Is Everything

For those of us who think thanksgiving is optional, this gospel story shows how very important it is to Jesus that we take time to give thanks.

God is Great! God is Good!

The irresistible scent of home cooked goodness permeated the air, torturing our faithful yellow Lab and her spastic beagle companion. They struggled to restrain themselves, maintaining perfect posture, as their eyes followed every move, hoping their patient obedience would reap tasty rewards.
