"O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

Thanksgiving is important to me because it is a time to give thanks
to our Lord,
for the many blessings He has given us.
It is a time to stop and remember all the wonderful things that
happened through out the year, and a
time to be thankful we have a family near. Thanksgiving to me
isn't about the food or what we
receive. It's about being thankful for what we already have; family,
friends and people we care about. To
give thanks is to show God we love and appreciate Him, even
though we sometimes forget the little
things God does for us. Thanksgiving is a day to remember all the
little and big things. What I'm
thankful for, what thanksgiving really means and how I intend to
celebrate this Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is a holiday created in the 1623, by the Pilgrim's and
They created this holiday to give
thanks to God for a plentiful harvest. Now clearly we don't share
the exact reasons the Pilgrim's where
thankful on this day. However we do share one reason, we
have a plentiful harvest. Not a harvest of
crops, but a harvest of many other things. We have a huge
harvest of love, of joy, of faith and of God's
grace. Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks to God for
providing us with a plentiful harvest. A feeling of gratitude, that is the definition of thanks. However
give thanks means something different. To give
thanks is to not only feel
gratitude, it's to show
and express that feeling of
appreciation. To give thanks means to try and give back to whomever
your thankful for or to. Giving thanks is a
way to show God we haven't forgotten what He or the
people he blessed
I intend to show my thanks to our Lord through prayer and spending
time with the wonderful family
He gave me.
Thanksgiving has forever been a day to spend with your family, to now only show God
your thanks but to
give thanks to your family as well. In prayer I would thank God for the many
blessing He has
bestowed upon me this year;my family my new found faith and or the many hardships
I faced this year. I
would show thanks to my family by spending a day with them and praying for
them. These are the
ways I would show my thanks this year.
To conclude, the holiday Thanksgiving is about showing gratitude and appreciation to God.
should be spent with the people you love. You should show your thanks through prayer
and giving to
others. Thank God for your plentiful harvest this Thanksgiving season.
