1828 Definition (from Noah Webster’s dictionary)
THANKSGIV'ING, n. The act of rendering thanks or expressing gratitude for favors or mercies.
No, Thanksgiving isn’t about football, overstuffing OURSELVES (and sometimes the turkey), or even Charlie Brown….although there is nothing wrong with those things. Thanksgiving is about GRATITUDE to our Lord for his favors and mercies….thankfulness for the people in our lives that also show us favor and mercy….a time to reflect on how WE can show favor and mercy to others….EVERY day!
Have a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving!!!
