Thanksgiving is an American holiday that started around 1619 as a celebration and thanksgiving for the good harvest. This year the holiday is being celebrated on Thursday 22nd of November.
I really like the idea of giving thanks and gratitude and actually setting aside a day to do this. In the busyness of life, sometimes we forget to take a step back and appreciate the good things that God has blessed us with. Not everything might have gone according to your plan but the fact that we are still here is something to be grateful for.
As we plan for the new year and bring the year 2018 to a close, do not forget to give thanks to God for how far He has brought you. You might not be where you wanted to be, but you are definitely not where you started from.
What are you thankful for today?
