Yahweh, thank You for the gift of life, for redemption through Your Son, and for blessings made possible by Your Spirit. Thank you for this bountiful land that was dedicated to the freedom and liberty of all people. Thank you for the men and women who stand in the gap, doing what they can to keep us safe. Open the eye's of the world's leaders to Your truth, or shine Your light on those who live in darkness, so that all of us can seen them for what they are. We pray in the name of Yeshua. Amen.

Thanksgiving week is a time to express gratitude and appreciation and to acknowledge what we are thankful for in our lives. Many of us have Thanksgiving routines and rituals that take us out of the everyday routine of our lives and provide a space for us to slow down, unwind, reflect and give thanks.

This change of pace is important as our everyday lives tend to be focused on action and activities, completion and accomplishment. Few of us make time in our routines for reflection and thankfulness.

The breaking of routine allows this pause for reflection to occur....
