Thanksgiving--just a holiday?
No! It must be a state of life!
There is so much to be thankful for!
Thanksgiving is even more than mere 'attitude.'
It must be deeper than 'feeling.'
Thanksgiving is a truth that is present beyond vision or feeling.
It is more than just a time of year. Again, it MUST be a state of life.

Thanksgiving, and thankful once more.
All things He comes to restore!
Not ever shall I know a lack:
whatever life takes, He gives back!

Thanksgiving, and thankful again.
I am most blessed amongst men!
He causes my life to behold
a reason for thanks to unfold!

Thanksgiving, and thankful always.
In all is there cause to give praise
as life, it is far more than "seen,"
Thanksgiving--so much does it mean!

Live Thanksgiving! As you learn to give thanks even through the most dire times and events, it will be easier to see beyond them at the 'bigger picture,' and those same times and events will have greater meaning.
