Thanksgiving Comes After Christmas

“The private and personal blessings we enjoy – the blessings of immunity, safeguard, liberty and integrity – deserve the thanksgiving of a whole life.”

  –Jeremy Taylor

“Thanksgiving comes after Christmas.”


“If I succeed, I will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek His grace.”

 –Max Lucado

“It must be an odd feeling to be thankful to nobody in particular. Christians in public institutions often see this odd thing happening on Thanksgiving Day. Everyone in the institution seems to be thankful “in general.” It’s very strange. It’s a little like being married in general.”

    –Cornelius Plantinga
