But, while I love Thanksgiving, it is extremely important to me whether I am thankful all year - not just on one day. I am committed to being a thankful grandma and today I'm ever so thankful God answers prayer and my grandsons are able to see and experience how He does this! We have been praying for specific things and as God answers - which He has been, the boys and I talk about these answers and spend time thanking God for them!
In Psalm 78 it talks about how the people of Israel forgot all God did for them. When they did this, they fell into sin. Eventually, they turned back to God for forgiveness, but then they forgot all over again, fell into sin and the whole cycle repeated - again and again.
