As Helen Simpson and I were delivering a Christmas tree on Tuesday evening, she began telling me about her recent trip abroad and how beautiful the Christmas lights were along the Champs d'Elysees. I learned from her that since Europeans don't celebrate Thanksgiving, the Christmas season is in full swing early in the month of November.
Helen expressed that she wishes we could move Thanksgiving to another time of year because the day has almost become an afterthought sandwiched between pumpkins and elves. Wouldn't it be nice if Thanksgiving DAY could become a season all unto itself?
Well, friends, today I am providing you a list of 28 Bible verses, one for each day of our newly formed SEASON of Thanksgiving! I encourage you to print this out and put it in your Bible, on your nightstand, or somewhere that you will see it each day.
Read the verse aloud with your family, allow time for everyone to share the blessings of their day, and then offer a prayer of thanksgiving together. On the last day of our Thanksgiving Season, we will be giving thanks and celebrating the best gift of all - JESUS!
