Thanksgiving really means giving thanks

Wow! Where did the summer go? It seems as soon as the Halloween season showed up on store shelves, so did Christmas. In some stores Christmas showed up before the Halloween items did! Well, Halloween's over and so the frenzy begins. What happened to Thanksgiving? I personally really like this holiday. Don't rush the season. Commercially, I know it's not a big profit day for retail establishments, but it can be for our soul/spirit. Can't we have one holiday that makes us just feel good inside? We need to stop and give thanks every day, for all things; but sadly that doesn't happen in all homes. Ephesians 5:20 says "Giving thanks for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." Psalms 95:2 states "Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms."
