What Will We Choose on Thanksgiving Day?

Give thanks in all circumstances.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV)
We can choose to be sad or choose to be glad.
By expressing thanks for the blessings we’ve had,

Our joy will increase and we’ll conquer disease;
Infections weaken when we have inner peace.

Even in solitude, we can pursue gratitude,
It’s a healthy, life-giving attitude.

If we are still breathing, that’s the place to start
Let’s not take for granted a beating heart.

Each day and each hour is a gift treasure;
Understanding this truth bring us pleasure.

It frees us from resentment and fear,
And gives us courage to love and share;

Though sharing with others what we’ve been given,
We will find joy on this side of heaven.
