Here are some posts I’ve read over the last 24 hours that I think are well worth reading on this Thanksgiving Day.
Several years ago, I interviewed Pastor Chuck Swindoll about Thanksgiving. I asked for the interview because I had heard him comment about how he likes Thanksgiving more than Christmas. During our conversation, Chuck talked about all the things he likes about Thanksgiving; but especially how it’s a holiday that hasn’t become loaded down with commercial enterprise, like Christmas has.
This is our third Thanksgiving since we moved to Charlotte, NC. Last year because of a special last-minute deal offered by US Airways, the family was able to fly back to Minnesota to spend a good bit of the weekend with our extended family there; but this time as we did during 2003, we’ll be grateful together here in Charlotte, just us and our kids.
