The beauty of thanksgiving

Thanksgiving as a way of life

 The hustling and bustling, the excitement, the preparation, the announcements, the radio and television discussion about thanksgiving makes one to wonder how it would be devastating if there is no Thanksgiving, but for everyday that passes in our lives we always have a thing or two to say thank you for. Is it the job that we got or the birth of our kids or the house that we bought or the new car that we have or our kids graduating from school and we are happy for the blessing of God by giving us good and understanding neighbors or friends that always want to hear us out and listen to what we have to say and the people we have in our lives. We are thankful for all that has transpired in our lives from different angles of our various lives, starting from the beginning of the year till date.

It was a great and wonderful day when we went out to the salvation army place to appreciate the thanksgiving, the hall was full of people, the kids were playing around, the adults were discussing, the ushers were helping people with food and other activities in this place and the beauty of it all is the interaction and the happiness you see on people’s face on that particular day, the DJ was there doing his thing and the most exciting part of it was the gift that was given out from the ticket that was given out to everybody and to make it more elaborate was the band that played at this occasion, the little children that were singing and playing around and the host and I then said to myself, no matter what your situation is and whatever you are going through, we need to give thanks for every single day of our lives, for every single breath that we breathe and for the lives of our family and friends.

some are in the hospital not able to go out or see friends, but the lives that they have is worth being thankful for and it is always a thing of beauty to say Our father in heaven we thank you, if that is the only prayer we have, it is worth it. We have always been thankful for everyday of our lives and when we sleep and wake up, but the most beautiful thing about thanksgiving is being able to say thank you after all our lives experiences on the thanksgiving day is absolutely amazing.  Some families go out on that day to the movies to have fun which is part of the beauty of thanksgiving.  One other thing that i appreciate and value about the thanksgiving is the black Friday, a lot of family is making preparation for this day so they can buy stuff for a moderate price and enjoy the bliss of the thanksgiving ceremony and another thing that i realize is people going out on black Friday despite the cold to buy stuff for their various families.

IF DAYS HAD 25 HOURS, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THE EXTRA TIME?

HOW WOULD YOU USE THE EXTRA TIME, IF DAYS HAD 25 HOURS

A clock with a 24-hour dial.

TIME IS VERY PRECIOUS IN OUR LIVES THAT WE DO NOT PLAY WITH IT AND FOR EVERY TIME THAT WE HAVE, WE  USE  IT FOR ONE PURPOSE OR THE OTHER AND HAVING 1 EXTRA HOUR AFTER THE REGULAR 24 HOUR IS A BIG THING. HOW TO USE THIS EXTRA HOUR DEPENDS ON INDIVIDUALS, WE USE OUR TIME FOR  DIFFERENT PURPOSES, BUT AN EXTRA HOUR AFTER OUR NORMAL 24 HOUR IS SOMETHING ELSE.  WHAT CAN I DO WITH THAT EXTRA HOUR IF DAYS HAD 25 HOUR ? HMMMM! FOR ME I WILL PREFER TO USE THE EXTRA TIME FOR A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT DESIRES, IF I HAVE MY WAY I WOULD USE THE EXTRA ONE HOUR FOR CINEMA OR MOVIES OR I WILL RATHER USE IT FOR SLEEPING OR ELSE I WILL USE SAME TIME FOR OTHER PURPOSES LIKE READING, WRITING, GOING TO A QUIET PLACE TO MEDITATE OR HAVE A WORKOUT, SING OR PREFERABLY PRAYING AND IF NEED BE, I COULD USE THE EXTRA HOUR SIGHT SEEING, ACTUALLY THERE ARE SERIES OF OPTIONS FOR ME TO CHOOSE FROM, ON WHAT TO DO IN THE EXTRA h  WHICH IS  24 + 1 = 25 HOURS.

An extra hour is a good thing

24 HOUR OF OUR NORMAL TIME IS USED FOR WORK, SCHOOLING FOR STUDENTS, SINGING FOR MUSICIANS, CAMPING FOR SOME PEOPLE,WRITING AND OTHER PURPOSES FOR DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS.  SO LOOKING AT IT CRITICALLY WHAT CAN WE REALLY DO WITH AN EXTRA TIME AFTER 24 HOUR?, SOME WILL SAY I WILL SLEEP, SOME WILL SAY I WILL PLAY POKER, SOME WILL SAY I WILL GO TO THE JIM AND HAVE SOME WORKOUT AND SOME WILL SAY I WOULD RATHER STAY AT HOME,READING, STUDYING, WRITING OR DOING SOMETHING ELSE  WHILE WILL PREFER TO EAT, SLEEP, WATCH TV, BROWSE,BLOG, RELAX AND HAVE A NICE TIME. I ASKED SOME FRIEND WHAT HE WOULD HAVE DONE WITH HIS EXTRA TIME FROM 25 HOUR AND HE SAID HE WISH HE COULD DO SOMETHING WRONG IN THE EXTRA TIME, BUT EVERYONE DO HAVE THEIR DIFFERENT OPINION ABOUT WHAT THEY CAN DO WITH THE EXTRA TIME AFTER THE REGULAR 24 HOUR.
