Next week is Thanksgiving – the one day each year set aside for being with those we love, feasting on delicious food, and giving thanks for what we have.  However, Proverbs 15:15 tells us “A happy heart as a continual feast!”  Instead of just on Thanksgiving, shouldn’t we be giving thanks to God every day of the year for all that we have to be grateful about?  I, personally, have a multitude of things to be thankful for.  But, sometimes, in the busyness of day-to-day life, I forget to be grateful for them.  Every night before I go to sleep, I try to think of 3 things I’m thankful for that day.  Think I’m silly for doing this?  Research has shown that people who are grateful tend to be happier, healthier, and more fulfilled.  So, instead of just being thankful and feasting on Thanksgiving, try being thankful every day of the year.  Then your happy heart will have a continual feast!
