Not all about the Turkey!

Hi again,
I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving today! All full of Turkey? Haha! If your family is like most in the United States and Canada you ate a huge Turkey and stuffed yourself with common things like mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce,candied yams,deviled eggs,and of course a Turkey just to list a few of the many things that are eaten on Thanksgiving day. This has been a common tradition sense Thanksgiving day was even created. As most of you know this was way back in 1621 when the pilgrims were so thankful for food. That is where we get the tradition nowadays to fix so much food and stuff ourselves. Well when you really stop and think about it, this holiday is not all about the Turkey at all! In fact, it's not at all about the food. It's about being thankful. Think about 1 thing that your thankful for. That's what thanksgiving is all about! Something else? Exactly. Any of those things that came to mind are all things that Thanksgiving is about. Thanksgiving is all about being thankful and it is very important to remember that. This thanksgiving, I was able to spend the day with family and God really opened my eyes to see just how much family means to me. What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? God Bless!

"Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ"

Ephesians 5:20
