Give Thanks

            Oops, should I chew or just hold it?  We've all been caught with a mouthful, right?  It's not that we're not thankful, but we just didn't put the Giver of all things first priority.
            Even Jesus gave thanks for the food that He was given and shared......'Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, and when he had given thanks, he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and they in turn to the people.'
           Most of us do not really know what true hunger is.  Food is often taken for granted, until we are reminded how costly it is at the grocery store.  God provides for all our needs, but not necessarily for all our wants.
          As the season will soon change, let us be reminded to be thankful for all the different foods that will again be 'new' to us since this time last year.


  1. Yep, I resemble that little squirrel, often. We need to give thanks for all things, Daily................Dad

  2. I'll miss the watermelon and cantaloupe and cherries and peaches and strawberries and...........I'll enjoy instead the pumpkin and apples and oranges and tangerines and...........Good reminder! God is so lavish with His goodness!
