Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, because it presents a formality of that which I personally practice each and every single day, without fail. Even in the light of turmoil, or strife, because it allows me to adjust my attitude or the nature of that which may be presenting itself as some sort of obstacle.
Giving thanks is a release of anguish, and an invitation to peace.
Afterall, Thanksgiving IS for giving thanks...and there is always something to be thankful for! And if you have doubts, get a camera and go out of doors, and capture a moment with Mother Nature. You might be surprised what you see at the end of the lens.
And as we approach the Christmas Season, I am always reminded of my favorite Christmas show...Charlie Brown's Christmas and these very special words from Linus to Charlie Brown...
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace,
good will toward men."
Now, more than ever, let it be so.
Linking up with Kara for Tuesday Afternoons...stop by to say "hello"!
