This holiday is my favorite as it hasn't become completely adulterated by commercialism. It's so beautiful in it's simplicity of gathering family and friends, eating a wonderful meal and celebrating the blessings of life that God has given us. This morning I was reading Psalm 147. The writer says we should "sing to the Lord with thanksgiving". God has blessed us all and we take so much for granted every day. For me I'm reminded that God has given me exceptional health and physical ability and that I spend very little time thanking him for these gifts. Before I start spending serious culinary time in the kitchen today, I will be doing a "brick" workout of an 18 mile bike and a 3 mile run. You can be certain I will have my Ipod listening to David Crowder and singing to the Lord with thanksgiving.
