Since my "other" job is in retail, We had Thanksgiving yesterday.
Before anyone gets a whip for the stores open on Thanksgiving,
please know that I was more than happy to celebrate yesterday.
Thanksgiving is a time to pause and cultivate a Thankful spirit.
So whether I celebrated yesterday or today was not a big deal to me.
However, as I watched the mad frenzy of people
running around hoping to get that great deal on a sweeper or
Or some other product that was on sale,
I was reminded there in the store of how truly blessed I am.
The thought occurred to me
that there is nothing I truly need.
Yes, there are things I might like,
But I have a house,
clothes and a car
more than enough food.
I am not rolling in money
but thanks be to God who has blessed me,
I have what I need.
My life is not perfect;
yes I have hard days
and face many trials,
But I know that God has blessed me more than I deserve.
So Today as I wind down from all the madness that comes with Black Friday
on Thursday, I want to praise God and Thank him for all the blessings I have recieved.
