Thanksgiving Thoughts 2020

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Kanawha Falls 112420a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The failing afternoon light quietly slips away on the banks of the big river. As the sun ebbs away from the sky I find myself staring out across the river at falls searching for inspiration. This is Thanksgiving week and in the early days of American history the celebration was for more than one day. I’m told that in those days there was little difference between friends and family. The bonds were deep and lifelong. Today we often ask each other “What are you thankful for?” Most people will single out a favored possession or relationship. A few people will cite a spiritual blessing as the thing that their most thankful for. And all these things are good and they all have a massive amount of value. But, I think that our ancestors were thankful not just for these things but also for freedom they had to enjoy their blessings. Yes it’s true that it would be a long time before the Declaration Of Independence and the birth of a new nation but compared to the life they had in Europe life in the New World was second only to Heaven itself.

My final thought for tonight is that I’m thankful for life itself and thankful for the liberty to enjoy it.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
