Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!
Tomorrow, we have a thanksgiving service at our church too, although our thanksgiving day bears no resemblance to your one.
I remember hearing of an old lady who lived on our island when things were very different to the way they are now. She was poor. I mean, really poor.
She sat at her table one day and all she had on her plate was a chunk of bread. She bowed her head to give thanks, and was heard to say these words:
"All this, and Christ besides"
If only Christ had the place in our hearts He had in this woman's heart!
She needed nothing more. Pray we would have this spirit too. After all, if we have Christ as our Saviour, we have everything.
God bless y'all as you spend time with family and loved ones.
Enjoy your meal. Enjoy each other. Enjoy the day off. Just don't forget the One who has given us all that we have.
