The World Forgot Thanksgiving


Many of you should be ashamed for passing Thanksgiving and never giving thanks. You all are like the 9 lepers who walked away from Jesus never saying thank you.

Well the world may have missed Thanksgiving but we sure didn´t. We celebrated with all our might. Hannah cooked up a storm, making a delicious pumpkin pie, a juicy chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing. We had the works. We invited our friend Larry to come and join us, he was excited he said ¨I´ll be there with bells on ¨. We might be a long way from home but we were going to celebrate just as if we were in the states.

While Hannah cooked I thought I would call my family and wish them a happy thanksgiving. That´s when we received the disturbing news...it was not thanksgiving...thanksgiving was a week away. We couldn´t believe it! We thought for sure Thanksgiving was always the third Thursday of November, evidently not.

Nevertheless, we didn´t tell our friend any different, and it sure didn´t change the taste of the food, and we were still thankful for God´s blessings. One good thing, we can start playing Christmas music before everyone else!

Remember Hannah when we lived in Jordan? I was always calling a week early or a week late wishing everyone the best of the holidays. But Happy Thanksgiving! It looks like a meal fit for a King. Beautiful.
