Thanksgiving focuses on Gods gifts. Our challenge is to take nothing for granted, but to appreciate every blessing. Thanksgiving is a way of life. Indeed, the prayer of thanksgiving characterizes a eucharistic people. Our gratitude centers on the greatest gift of allJesus. This gift, and all the other gifts through Gods providence, are expressions of Gods love. How fitting and just it is that we always and everywhere express our gratitude to the Lord.
