The Mystery of Thanksgiving

11/24/2016

I remember hearing a sermon about Thanksgiving
The minister didn’t give thanks . . .
for food or family.

Instead,
he was thankful for
his freedom to worship . . . or not,
his freedom to pray . . . or not, and
his freedom to give thanks . . . or not.

He said the mystery of Thanksgiving is
how is it possible that
those with so much can be thankful for so little,
when those with nothing can be thankful for everything?

I like to think
whatever success that I have
resulted from being bright and working hard.
But, that ignores luck!

My good luck includes
good family, good friends,
and a great country!

Happy Thanksgiving!
