Thanksgiving is the giving of thanks. The Pilgrims gave thanks to God for enabling them to grow food in the New World so they could stay in the New World and worship God as they believed the Bible showed them, they should.
As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, we should celebrate with sense. Do not make 5 different vegetable dishes if only two are needed. Freeze extra leftovers do not just throw them away. Have Thanksgiving at home and not at a restaurant so you can enjoy all the leftovers.
Boil down the turkey carcass or the bone from the ham after the majority of the meat has been eaten. Boil the bones until the marrow is out of them to make broth for soup. A healthful broth will gel when cooled.
Spend time with family. Eat the delicious meal together and then stay to play cards or a game. Spend time purposing to be grateful and giving thanks to God and others around us!
