This year marks the 67th anniversary of the National Thanksgiving Turkey presentation (and following Presidential Turkey Pardon). Past pardoned turkeys include Marshmallow, Gravy, Popcorn, Caramel, Cobbler and Gobbler. (It’s pretty clear by those names that we’re food-focused, especially this time of year.)

And, no matter what you may be scribbling down on your preliminary menu (Ham? Casseroles? Tofurkey?), remember the heart behind this holiday: GRATITUDE.
Psalm 107:1 says “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.” (NIV) Let’s give thanks to God for who He is. Always good, always faithful. May our hearts be always grateful.
