A final reflection on thanks giving

October 14, 2013

fall tree2

Over the weekend, as I observed what people say they are thankful for; I noticed two trends.  One group of things people say they are thankful for includes things that money can’t buy.  Things like family, friends, health, freedom, sunshine, and beautiful fall trees.  The second group consists of simple things that it takes very little money to buy.   Things like pumpkin pie, flavoured coffee, and fuzzy sweaters.  Maybe we take the expensive things like warm homes, reliable transportation, and ample food for granted.  But maybe that is just a reminder that we should take those things for granted, that we wish we lived in a world where everyone could take those things for granted.  Food, shelter, access to jobs, school, or wherever we need to be going should be the basics in life.  I really do wish I lived in a world where people were thankful for priceless things and simple joys in life.  As the non-perishable food was collected at church yesterday, I was reminded that we all have a part to play in making this vision for the world a reality.  I won’t tell you what you should do, but I encourage you to think about what you can do to ensure that all people every where can give thanks for things they take for granted.
