Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We had a good time and I hope you did too. After food and football we had a little activity initiated by Becky’s Dad. He wrote every letter of the phrase H-A-P-P-Y T-H-A-N-K-S-G-I-V-I-N-G on a separate piece of paper. We each had one letter and were instructed to think of something we were thankful for that started with the letter we had on our piece of paper.
I had the letter “A.” I explained that in the light of our recent elections, I am thankful in knowing that Jesus has “all authority” in heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18). Things are still in God’s hands and He never exclaims “Oh My Me!” out of surprise.
Different families have many traditions, but sadly, the families of Jehovah’s Witnesses (JWs) are not among those who have Thanksgiving traditions. Like all other holidays, JWs are forbidden from celebrating it. In light of this fact, I decided to post a Quick Question For Jehovah’s Witnesses on this topic.
The next time you speak with a Witness, you might want to ask them this same question.
