Tis the season to be thankful

Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. Col. 2:16

I feel like I’m cheating on Thanksgiving if I put up Christmas decorations or buy gifts before celebrating Thanksgiving. As a holiday, I love Thanksgiving and hate to see it upstaged by it’s flashier cousin. And now it looks like some poor souls will be working Thanksgiving night so Black Friday can start even earlier. But I’m not judging anyone who starts Christmas early. Thanksgiving  is an attitude more than it is a holiday. Celebrating Christ, spreading love and joy, giving gifts are all ways to express thanks through the whole season.

Lord, keep me in this cycle of thankfulness.
