Beware, intrepid readers.
Today is Thanksgiving.
For some indefinable reason, lately I hear it labeled "Turkey Day."
Let's stop that insidious madness before it spreads. Okay, maybe that's too strong of a term, but it's kinda' fun to say, "insidious madness."
If you don't believe me, say, "insidious madness" out loud three times. Doesn't it roll off your tongue perfectly?
This is a day to give God thanks. Something that we should do every day anyway.
"Turkey Day" doesn't convey the meaning of Thanksgiving. The message of Thanksgiving. The joy of Thanksgiving.
"Happy Turkey Day," is misleading to the poor turkeys. C'mon, how happy are they today?
Saying, "Lord, thank you for all you've blessed me with," makes better sense, doesn't it?
Even in the midst of sorrow, trial, tribulation, pressure, flat tires, clogged sinks, and colicky babies, we can find something to be grateful for.
So friends, whatever your circumstances, I pray you enjoy a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving.
