Continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him ... overflowing with thankfulness.

Colossians 2:6-7 NIV

Thanksgiving is one of the few holy days that we live, practice, and celebrate every day, through our actions, thoughts, and lifestyles. It’s the “giving” that makes us “living,” in the name of Jesus! Make a list of what you are thankful for today. Share your list with others as they share with you. Make this Thanksgiving more than a turkey fest and turn it into a “sharing-the-faith- fest!” Living a Thanks-Living life allows us to share our faith and hope with those around us and to listen to their joys and struggles along the way. Take time today to make a list of your blessings through these years. Thank the Lord, thank other people around you, and encourage others to do the same. We “live thanks” each day in the Lord!

Lord, thank you for our gift of life. Forgive us when we fail to thank you for a life of Thanks-giving. Amen.

Reflect: Use the letters of the word “THANKS” to share what you are thankful for this day!
