TIS THE SEASON...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

By

Strictly speaking ‘JOURNEY’ indicates ‘a day’s travel’, but there are journeys that last 3 days, a week, a month, a year, and indeed A LIFETIME...

 

This post relates to ‘SHORTER JOURNEYS’...in fact...I like to refer to these as ‘SEASONS’...most people call them ‘HOLIDAYS’...BUT...

 

TO ME...If a Holiday is worth celebrating at all, it should last longer than ONE DAY...!!!

 

SEASONS ARE ONE OF GOD’S GIFTS...

 

WE are NOW in the season of THANKSGIVING...NEXT THURSDAY...

 

However, to truly enjoy and do the Holiday justice, it should entail and espouse ALL THE PREPARATIONS, THE ETHNIC TRADITIONS, THE CULTURAL FORMALITIES, THE GATHERING, THE FOODS, THE PRAYERS, THE FELLOWSHIP, THE MINUTE DETAILS, and even THE EXTENDED WEEKEND FOLLOWING...!!!

 

IN A REAL SENSE, ‘THANKS GIVING’ should be a daily exercise, part of the routine of every believer in Christ and His message...

 

We need to form HABITS, GOOD ONES, or else we can fall into the trap of defeatism, negativity, doom and gloom, depression, and those are CERTAINLY NOT WHAT JESUS PREACHED AND TAUGHT...!!!

 

NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO START...SO HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND CELEBRATE THE SEASON...OH, and KEEP YOUR CHIN UP...IT IS HARDER TO HIT THAT WAY...!!!

Hi Fran and I couldn't agree more. I've always loved the holidays because people seem to be kinder to each other. And, shouldn't it be that way every day.

Good morning Fran Gaspari ,

I'm so glad that Kathy Streib featured this in her "Ah-ha" moments for the week! You are so right we need to celebrate the seasons!! I've always loved the holidays because people like to spread good cheer to each other! We need to remember to extend that all year long. Thank you for your post!

We love seasons, Fran. All the anticipation leading up to them, and then the basking in fresh memories following them.

So true. So much preparation often goes into that one day and it's over before you know it. I like to stretch out the Holidays. Such as the Christmas Holidays, I always take a month to be with my daughter and grandsons in Hawaii.

You are so right....Thanksgiving should be every day. I think many of us see it that way...but sometimes we may forget it for a bit!  I like the keep the chin up... it is harder to hit that way!!!
