(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)


What comes to mind when I say the word Thanksgiving? Many think of family, food, and football. I have fond memories of going rabbit hunting with my dad and cousins early in the morning before the afternoon meal. We then watched my favorite football team, the Dallas Cowboys, play every Thanksgiving. John Madden would then hand out turkey legs to the players with the best stats for the day.


Thanksgiving is a time for memory making and family. Isn't it a shame that a lot of people only take the fourth Thursday of November to be thankful?


As Christians, we need to live a life of Thanksliving. Every day of our life should be lived with an attitude of gratitude. 


How can we do this? After all, life is tough. 


I encourage you to read 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. When we come together this Sunday, we will see that by rejoicing always, praying continually, and giving thanks, we can live a life of thanks-living everyday.


See you Sunday!


Love in Christ,
