I wish all Americans a Very Happy Thanksgiving.Â On a unique and profound holiday like this, it’s good to ponder on the following three quotes that put things into a proper perspective:
a) Jewel &Â Gratitude
“Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men, but be careful that you do not take the day and leave out the gratitude.” E. P. Powell
b) DayВÂ to Give Thanks
“It must be an odd feeling to be thankful to nobody in particular. Christians in public institutions often see this odd thing happening on Thanksgiving Day. Everyone in the institution seems to be thankful ‘in general.’ It’s very strange. It’s a little like being married in general.” Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.
c) Walk the Talk
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” J. F. Kennedy
Happy Thanksgiving, America!!
You all, who are celebrating today, are blessed to have a holiday like this. Treasure it and learn from it. A nation that has days like this one and appreciates them will always be a strong nation.
