The Season of Thanksgiving

I want to start a campaign to begin celebrating the "Thanksgiving Season" instead of just one single solitary day when we eat a big meal and "give thanks"! People tend to start the Christmas season so early that they just run over Thanksgiving in a hurry to get to Christmas.

Well, I want to begin the Thanksgiving Season when the weather changes and we put out our fall decorations. We should spend time doing crafts and/or taking time to focus on the things we are thankful for and, more importantly, the One we are thankful to for all He has done and is.

My heart overflows with all the thankfulness that I have for all He has done and who He is and how much He loves us!! I wish for everyone to take the next 6 weeks or so to celebrate His goodness and our thankfulness in whatever way they choose. Each day, play some worship songs focusing on thankfulness, take time at one meal a day to discuss His goodness and our thankfulness, decorate with things containing phrases about our thankfulness to God for all He has done and is in our lives.

What do you think? Could we start a revolution? Post your ideas on how we could celebrate the Thanksgiving season longer, post some song suggestions for others to start with and some decorating ideas. All of us together ought to be able to come up with some great ideas to celebrate the Thanksgiving season over the next several weeks!
