Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody!

 

Here are some Thanksgiving jokes, from contributing editor Richard Lederer:

 

Why did the turkey cross the road?

 

To prove he wasn’t chicken.

 

Is turkey soup good for you?

 

Not if you’re the turkey

 

Why did the person quit smoking cold turkey?

 

Because the feathers made him cough.

 

Why did the turkey bolt down its food?

 

Because it was a gobbler.

 

What do turkeys like to eat on Thanksgiving?

 

Nothing, they’re already stuffed.

 

Did you hear about the conservative turkey?

 

It had two right wings.

 May  your stuffing  be tasty  
 May  your turkey be  plump,  
 May  your potatoes  and gravy  
 Have  never a lump.   
 May  your yams be  delicious  
 And  your pies take  the prize,  
 And  may your  Thanksgiving dinner  
 Stay  off your  thighs!    
  

Thankfulness

By Roy Lessin

“Give thanks in everything—1 Thessalonians 5:18

Give thanks for everything—Ephesians 5:20

Pray about everything with thanksgiving—Philippians 4:6

Do all things without murmuring—Philippians 2:14

Thankfulness is the presence of gratitude and the absence of murmuring. Thankfulness is an attitude of appreciation for everything that is received; murmuring is an attitude of complaint for everything that is withheld. Thankfulness is rooted in humility; murmuring is rooted in pride. Thankfulness says, “This is more than I deserve.”; murmuring says, “I deserve more!” Thankfulness is the doorway to contentment; murmuring is the doorway to dissatisfaction. Thankfulness travels on the highway of joy; murmuring travels on the highway of gloom. Thankfulness causes the disposition to be sweet; murmuring causes the disposition to become sour.”

Lord, every single gift comes from You…“Lift my gaze to see life from Your perspective. Help me to understand-and treasure-every good thing You send…”

(From James 1:7)   One Thousand Gifts   http://www.aholyexperience.com/

470. On this Thanksgiving Day 2011, I will shout with joy to the Lord, along with all the earth! I will worship the Lord with gladness. I will come before Him, singing with joy. I acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made me, and I am His. I am His child, a sheep of His pasture. I will enter His gates with thanksgiving; and go into His courts with praise. I will give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and His faithfulness continues to each generation. Psalm 100 NLT for me
