The Thanksgiving season is often lost among the busy-ness of the end of the year. However, it's a season designed to help us reflect on the blessings we've received throughout the year and celebrate them with friends and family.
For so many all over the world, the year 2020 has been chaotic and sometimes tragic. So it's especially important that we take time remind ourselves of the many ways in which God has demonstrated His goodness to us.
