Between shuffling turkeys from hot ovens to crowded tables, terrible Detroit Lions games and sleeping overnight in line for a Target Black Friday sale, won't somebody please think of the children and keep them occupied and out of trouble over Turkey Day Break?
A common worry parents have around Thanksgiving? Their children won’t eat well. They might not even eat at all. The solution? Imagine Thanksgiving from the perspective of a child. You don’t who's going to be there, the food or the schedule. In short, you don’t know what’s going on. And, on top of all that, you’re expected to just go along and get along. Filling them in on the plans for the day can solve a lot.
In these divided political times, these days of devastatingly frequent mass shootings and natural disasters, we are being called to love each other in spite of ourselves, in spite of our righteous positions, in spite of all the external and internal crazy going on. Hearts are tender, wounded, and exhausted. Let’s see how we can help take care of each other’s hearts this holiday season.
