Melody Beattie,a Christian author stated that, “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.   It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

It is no wonder that we are exhorted to give “thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Eph. 5:20).  Thanksgiving helps to keep us from the discontentment which is easily portrayed in our ever greedy society.

This Thanksgiving Season, take extra time to reflect on what you can be thankful for, instead of the desires that you have.
