Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

What are you thankful for?

I know it may be a busy day today, full of activity or worry or a change of plans or unexpected problems but remember what today is all about, focus on the part about being thankful, what you’re grateful for, what this day is meant to be all about and not what it has become for many – a chore, hassle, problems, drama, arguments, tension, awkward silence, reluctant meetings, obligatory family or relatives gathering, or some other negative type of perspective or view of this holiday.

Keep in mind all the good things about Thanksgiving. Try to make the best of whatever happens today. Try to make someone smile, make them glad they saw you and talked to you. Try, just don’t do less than that. Be that person who at least tried to celebrate Thanksgiving the way it’s meant to be.

Today is a holiday, a day for being together, a day for saying what you’re thankful for, a day for smiles and stories, a day of rest from days of work, a day that should stand out in some obvious way, an enjoyable day, one to remember, not to regret and wish to forget.

Again, happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it on this day, and those who live where it’s not, you can still make today a day of remembering what to be thankful for and celebrate it in your way. Enjoy.

Do you have no one to talk to or message or communicate with today? Comment here, ask something, say something, about being thankful or about Thanksgiving or about whatever’s on your mind. You’re not alone here, make something of today that you’ll remember, make use of the available ways of communication, fight your reluctance and hesitation, fight your fears, you’re not powerless. Today can be a good day; do you believe it?

God bless you.

He is not the …

“He is not the soul of Nature, nor any part of Nature. He inhabits eternity: He dwells in a high and holy place: heaven is His throne, not his vehicle, earth is His footstool, not His vesture.

“One day He will dismantle both and make a new heaven and earth. He is not to be identified even with the ‘divine spark’ in man. He is ‘God and not man.”
C. S. Lewis

Psalm 96:10-13

Psalm 96:10-13
“10) Say among the nations that the LORD reigns: the world also will be established that it will not be moved: He will judge the people righteously.
11) Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fullness of it.
12) Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it: then will all the trees of the wood rejoice
13) Before the LORD: for He comes, for He comes to judge the earth: He will judge the world with righteousness, and the people with His truth.”
