“Those who worship the Lord on a special day do it to honor him. Those who eat any kind of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who refuse to eat certain foods also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God.”
Romans 14:6 NLT. http://bible.com/116/rom.14.6.nlt
Praise God for his countless blessings. It is so easy to overlook the littlest things. Our daily bread is one of those blessings we often take for granted. I am so very blessed with the abundance of food. Today is a perfect example. I'm not alone. Pumpkin pie, turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, noodles, pumpkin pie and more pumpkin pie! I always look back to the first Thanksgiving and the diverse people coming together to celebrate the bountiful harvest. They were farmers. Farmers, the backbone of our country have labored hard throughout the year. We have eaten well because of their hard work. Our country has its poor, its homeless, its people that won't celebrate with a full thanksgiving feast. But, our country is blessed to have the best farmers in the world, the most abundance, and the most affordable food anywhere . We supply the worlds food with the grit and hard work of the American Farmer. Praise God for the gift of the harvest.
As we sit down for our feast today. Remember to thank the Lord for your meal. Remember to ask a special blessing to our nations farmers. Praise God he is watching out for us and cares deeply for those that are poor and don't have thanksgiving on their table today. Thank you Lord! I love you! I'm humbled by your grace and mercy. I don't deserve the wonderful meal today, but ono you give it to me as a gift out of your love. Thank You! Amen!
