As the holidays approach and Black Friday being around the corner, we prepare ourselves mentally and physically. But, with all the specials going on in stores and trying to get inline to get that awesome offer on a HD TV, are we remembering the actual value of the holidays?
I sometimes believe that families seem to forget that the holidays are for families to come together and enjoy each other’s company. We get too interested in black Friday and waking up early to get the best deal. But that stuff is tangible. It’s materialistic stuff that we can throw away and won’t last forever. Are we remembering our family? Are we still anxious to sit down together as a family at the dinner table and say grace? Or are we too worried to eat dinner to go buy that XBOX? Think about it, how many of your friends or family members left early on Thanksgiving Day because they wanted to stand in line first.
Don’t forget what Thanksgiving is all about. To be thankful for what we have. To be thankful for loved ones that are in our lives and the ones who have gone to be with the Lord. We learn something from everyone. So be thankful for everyone who has been a part of your life.
