Let us not forget all that we have. If you have clothes on - you have more than others. In America we take for granted that we have a roof over our heads - food to eat, a car, a job, a place to stay and a Christian Church to love me back.
Indeed we have more than we know. The air we breath, our life, our family, friends, pets, animals....etc. we are blessed. Let us never take advantage or take for granted that which our Supreme God [YHVH] has given us.
My hope is that all my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus (and all my friends) have a thankful holiday. Most of all, thank Heavenly Father for Jesus Christ.

"Dear God, Thank you for your amazing power and work in our lives, thank you for your goodness and for your blessings over us. Thank you for your great love and care. Thank you for your sacrifice so that we might have freedom and life. Forgive us for when we don't thank you enough, for who you are, for all that you do, for all that you've given. Help us to set our eyes and our hearts on you afresh. Renew our spirits, fill us with your peace and joy. We love you and we need you, this day and every day. We give you praise and thanks, for You alone are worthy! In Jesus' Name, Amen."

Make sure that you "eat" from the Word!
God desires to feed us with His Word, and we become spiritually malnourished when we do not graze in the pastures of His Word. We become imbalanced, anemic, confused, easily led astray, prone to doubt and backsliding. Some Christians do not recognize the hunger pangs they are suffering because they are not studying the Bible. Doctrine alone does not produce spiritual maturity, but there is no maturity without it. It is erroneous to say “I just want Christ, not doctrine.” Christology is the doctrine of Christ. Nor is it true that “Doctrine divides”.
-False doctrine divides; truth unites.-
