Throughout the United States this week, houses have been cleaned and tidied up, decorated festively and made ready for company.
Hours of labor-intensive and love-filled home cooking will result in a feast rarely seen throughout the year.
Relatives who tend to be strange characters will put on their best outfits, and their best behavior. Love will fill the air!
But, throughout it all, may this special holiday be first and foremost a glorious occasion to be reminded of the many blessings that we enjoy. May we all look to the Lord our Provider with a grateful heart and a prayer of thanks, for He is the One whose hands continually bless us, protect us and unite us.
Wishing you and yours a plentiful Thanksgiving!
