Program season is almost over, and it's time to start singing for the holidays! Because Thanksgiving is a somewhat neglected holiday, I love that this song was published in the Friend a few years ago.
In our family, we bring out the Christmas music the day after Halloween. We suffer through November, eagerly anticipating Thanksgiving so we can put up our trees and decorations! We have two running jokes...
1. when the question comes up 'why do we celebrate Thanksgiving?' we say, 'if we didn't have Thanksgiving, how would we know when to put up the tree?!'
2. right around turkey time, we jokingly say 'it's too bad we have to celebrate Thanksgiving halfway through Christmas!'

All joking aside, I do love Thanksgiving! Here is a flipchart for Life is O'erflowing With Beautiful Things. If you haven't considered this song, you should. It's simple, beautiful, and in line with My Heavenly Father Loves Me, and you can't go wrong singing about creation in all it's splendor.
Happy November! I hope you spend at least a few minutes considering all of the blessings that we are given every day. Life truly is overflowing.
