|Another Thanksgiving dinner has been successfully tucked under my belt forcing me to let out another two notches. This I am most happy to do. In a couple of years, I might, out of necessity, have to purchase a larger belt.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story While everybody is chatting and having the time of their life all I need to say is, "Would you pass the pumpkin pie, please?" And the pie goes around the table and stops at Yours Truly, despite the egregious look thrown my way by my wife. I simply smile at her while lifting a piece of pie onto my plate. Then I say, "This is the best pumpkin pie I have ever had," to thunderous cheers of everybody around the table. Even though I know that after every guest leaves I will face her grilling, it is well worth the risk. Everything in life that has any value at all has some level of risk to it. And believe you me; her Thanksgiving pumpkin pie is worth any risk I might take on Thanksgiving Day. King David in the Old Testament thought the same way. One of my favorite Psalms of David is the 100th Psalm. “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations" (Psalms 100 KJV). The spirit of Thanksgiving should permeate every day of the rest of our life. Tweet
