Priceless Thanksgiving memories

As I look back and reflect on past Thanksgivings, it really strikes me that none of those reflections that I cherish the most had anything to do with money or wealth.

So often, when we are asked to produce reasons why we are thankful, it is easy to respond with answers such as, “food, shelter, warmth, cars” and other items that have price tags on them. While we are certainly encouraged to thank God for the everyday “care things” that he provides, the real special gifts moments are not ornaments.

These days, I think of the Thanksgiving we spent with my Grandma Langham in Woodburn, when Aunt Alice played the old pump organ and we sang such songs as, “Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken,” “Now Thank We All Our God,” and “Come, Ye Thankful People Come.”
