I smiled,when I saw this blogg, I had forgotten, I wrote it.Smiles,well, last yr.it was bittersweet, this year I will be happy to celebrate alone, the druggie neighbor I had robbed me time n time
again, chemo had alot to do with my gullibleness (stupidity) but, this year I
will be happy, just to be alone, read the word have whatever God provides to eat & be praying for those less fortunate, who are homeless, not have a family or a fridge...we take so, much for granted.
Love of Jesus!

I like Thanksgiving because we don't have to exchange gifts that day.
---learner2 on 10/20/14|
Thanksgiving is very hard for me since it hurts to stand very long but my husband and I work together doing our usual tasks getting Dinner for the family. Our daughter does a huge amount of work.We make dressing,my special sweet potato dish. I bake two Pecan pies the day before cook the chicken in crock pot for dressing,put it all in. Cook Turkey in big electric roaster so its ready when we get up,put on warm until dressing done then we usually go to the Deer Pasture but I think this year we'll go to my daughters home about 25 minutes away. All the work is worth it and yes we make a lot but whoever wants to gets food to take home with them can. I love the family getting together. I don't care why we have it,its a blessing. God Bless

Most people do not "surfeit" during this time of year. Most families, including the families I know personally, have just enough as in a regular meal, but they give thanks for what they have. It gives me an opportunity to preach the gospel to the poor, to the fatherless, and to the homeless that even though the holiday of Thanksgiving is once a year, we ought to be thankful every day of the year and give thanks to God for everything and in everything we do.

Jer 30:19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few, I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
2Co 9:11-12 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God,
1Ti 4:4 For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
Col 4:2 Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving,

Thanksgiving because God Is Good.
Thanksgiving unto God every day.
Thanksgiving holiday maybe the only time some may - will give thanks.

Where in the Bible are we commanded to observe the 4th Thursday in November by holding a feast dedicated to surfeiting and then call it "thanksgiving?"
Glory to Jesus Christ!

I bought Popeye's chicken dinner for a hard worker I know. He was thankful someone cared. His job is super lousy. I am thankful to not have his job.
To show thanks, today he brought in three sweet potato pies for me.
Many people focus on God more during Thanksgiving than on Christmas.
Ro 1:21 because, knowing God, not as God do they glorify or thank Him.
The infant of Christmas I do not know. The man Christ Jesus, I am knowing better each day.
The food comes in second place to being with family members.

"Why do you like Thanksgiving?"
Elena, assuming you speak of the day, I like it because it is a day when families comes together in the spirit of thanksgiving, and issues and/or ill-feelings are set aside, at least for that day:o)
---Josef on 11/18/12|
enjoying God, remembering to be thankful every day, being with family or others or having a quiet day by myself in rest and prayer
