Good morning world “Thanksgiving is coming, and as our friends also family walk in the door, in our remembering and planning, it is once again time to think about what we are truly thankful for.
In our country's tradition it's very nice indeed to list the many things we are thankful for while happily chatting then sitting around the dining room table with the extra leaves! But for now in a different gist, just for a little bit, let's change things up a smidge, as we think once more about what Thanksgiving really is. Yes, let’s think about what we are truly Thankful for shore to shore.
Hence with a new twist I will give you a different concept on the dips and dives, low also highs of Thanksgiving.
Therefore in that gist, thinking about Thanksgiving in a new twist, remembering that and this, what is really going on, while you are sitting around a table of plenty saying you are thankful for this or that? Yes what is going on with us as we are looking for more….while keeping score wearing many different hats.
Sadly in keeping score to some people being thankful seems kind of boring, yet to some others very challenging as we are feeling like we are winning or losing . Accordingly as some of us give Thanks only one day out of the year, not really considering what we are thankful for while taking everything for granted in our laughter, (as others are dealing with falling tears) there’s a lot going on here and there.
Unhappily there and here..... there are some people who have nothing to be Thankful for and who are miserable. In those accolades Thanksgiving seems extremely misunderstood, torn up and worn out, in our private wars as so many are suffering.
Subsequently as some of us are sitting around the TV parades giggling, while others are fighting many secretive battles… saying you are Not thankful for anything…. as others seem to be Thankful for everything, there’s a lot going on.
Yes, saying you are Not thankful, or that you are Thankful for your family that you ignored all year long that praise of Thanksgiving seems kind of hollow.
Thus thinking of Thanksgiving in a different light, saying we are thankful for our wife we just yelled at, or kicked out the door, or that we are thankful for a husband screaming at his wife, because she's not cooking or serving fast enough in her chore, just does not seem right.
Then worse yet saying there is NOTHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR anymore…. all of that seems kind of conflicting on a day of Thanksgiving in those mean in tow sad, so low blows following.
Therefore being Thankful…. when you do Not know what you are Thankful for, or worse yet Not being Thankful for anything anymore, will always be big bitter pills to swallow.
In the same way saying we are thankful for food that we waste, while also being Thankful for clothes we don't like that we casually replace (after we have thrown them away,) does not seem like we are thankful for heaven’s sake. Yes in that earthquake of the soul…. having Nothing to be Thankful for…. Will always leave a big hole in your heart that is falling apart.
Jointly saying we are thankful for friends we gossip about day and night, or we are thankful for health we take for granted and don't monitor right is another plight. Jointly saying we are thankful for our bosses and our jobs that we really hate with all our might, or again that we are Not thankful for Anything, feels like in that lack of Thanksgiving, nothing is going right.
So in not seeing things clearly it seems to me like we are really MISSING THE POINT of what being Thankful means.
Sadly that means we are also missing the real reason for Thanksgiving!
Yes in forgetting how to be nice, and in being mean, we are summarily forgetting how to be kind. Connectively we are also forgetting where all of our blessings flow from day and night.
But don’t worry there is a way to find Thanksgiving, because thankfully thinking that way finally praising Jesus and remembering where all our blessings originate, we will then also remember who has given us Everything to be thankful for.
So let's always remember every day to be nice, and every hour to be kind following Jesus examples along the line, because it is from heaven that mercy, love, salvation, redemption and forgiveness are flowing.
Therefore we need to remember by following the Cross praising and loving Jesus…. that Every day will ALWAYS be Thanksgiving!” Joslin Fitzgerald

Your Prayer of Salvation
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way. Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day. I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.
Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
