As millions of us gather at tables to offer thanks during this beautiful American holiday, most will express gratitude to God for material blessings, and hopefully, more importantly, our freedom.
Lessons from LeAnn
Last week we commemorated Veterans Day, proudly and gratefully acknowledging the sacrifices and hardships faithfully accepted by the millions of men and women who have defended our nation, in times of peace as well as in times of war. These brave people safeguard the legacy of our founding fathers, a legacy of justice and liberty. Because of their sacrifices, we are free to gather in thanksgiving.
As I travel, when I see a man or woman in uniform, I make it a point to look them in the eye and say, "Thank you for serving." I don't know what brings me near tears the most...their gratitude or their apparent surprise at being thanked. In each of my presentations, I recognize and honor the veterans who have served our beloved nation.
II invite you to make this a practice in your life. Thank those who defend our freedom. Make a list of all the veterans you know and those who serve today. Then, check them off as you send a note or email of thanks. Freedom is a priceless gift. We cannot thank enough, those who secure it.
More than anything else we possess, freedom should be at the top of every American's list of things for which they are thankful, not just at Thanksgiving, but every day.
Soup for the Day; a healthy quote:
"Follow that hallowed custom and bow in reverent thanks for the blessings bestowed upon us, individually and as a nation." -Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower
