Giving Thanks in Everything

Thanksgiving is next week and I've been thinking about not only what I'm thankful for, but also how important it is to stop and be thankful. Not just for the good times but in the bad times too. I think in the bad times we need to be thankful God is there to help us, and also it's a chance for us to grow, mature, learn, and become stronger. God even said in EVERYTHING give thanks. Mom is always saying if we don't stop and be thankful, God gave it to us and He can just as easily take it away. I think she's right. I know at a much smaller level if I don't show appreciation for my treats and toys, mom takes them away from me for a while. And God is way more powerful than mom! AND, in the Holy Bible, people were always thanking God for good thing that happened to them, especially a guy named David. They say the first thanksgiving was when the humans called pilgrims ate with those called indians. But, I think it started back in Bible times because lots of times when they gave thanks they also ate big meals too. So, take some time this week and next to think about what you are thankful for, thank those that gave it to you, and eat a BIIIG meal!! Thank you! Love, Beau
