Thanksgiving 2014

Several years ago I was fortunate to hear a pastor speak of how important Thanksgiving Day was for him.  He went on to say that he found it good to prepare for Thanksgiving Day by a season of thankfulness, an Advent of Thanksgiving if you will,  and for the weeks before Thanksgiving Day he helped us focus our attention on thankfulness and gratitude.

I would like to offer us the same opportunity this year by giving space here each day to think for at least a moment about thankfulness.

I will begin today with the posting of the well known hymn “Count Your Blessings” and offer each day this month a Scripture, or quotation, or hymn, or link, or thought that I hope nurtures a spirit of gratitude.

I invite you to make the journey with me.  All the posts will be tagged “Thanksgiving 2014.”
