If you haven’t done so in a while, I recommend making a list on this Thanksgiving day of the people and other blessings for whom and for which you are most thankful. It’s a fairly safe guess that most of our lists would include some or all of the following:

People:

  • Parents
  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Grandchildren
  • Siblings
  • Pastors
  • Teachers
  • Friends
  • Neighbors
  • Public servants
  • Health care providers
  • Police and fire men and women
  • Military service men and women

Blessings:

  • Health
  • Home
  • Food
  • Faith
  • Freedom
  • Forgiveness
  • Peace
  • Prosperity
  • Safety
  • Security
  • Vocation
  • Employment
  • Income and financial resources

Perhaps this outline will be helpful in preparing your own list. Where possible, be specific. Fill in the blanks. Name the family members and friends for whom you are thankful and let them know they made your list.

This Thanksgiving, take some time to thank God for these very important people and blessings!

“Oh give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good and his steadfast love endures forever!” (Ps. 106:1)
