Day 22: Thanksgiving

Starting Point:
Today in the United States people are celebrating Thanksgiving.  Find out more about Thanksgiving here.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.   It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.    Melody Beattie

Bible verse:
Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.   Psalm 95:2
