With all this activity, the reason we have these holidays sometimes gets pushed to the back of our thoughts. When we take the time, we realize that these holidays are really Holy Days. Thanksgiving is a celebration of giving thanks to GOD for our many blessings, which leads to Christmas, a celebration of the birth of our Savior.
These are very special Holy Days and important, but we shouldn't forget common Holy Days either. As GOD stated in the Ten Commandments our Sabbath should be a Holy Day, a day dedicated to the LORD GOD. Traditionally we think of Sunday as our Sabbath, but with today's life style many of us have to work on Sunday. Even so, we can still keep the Sabbath Holy, nothing says that we can't use another day of the week as our "day of rest".
So as we begin this holiday season, enjoy the activities, give thanks, worship GOD, and remember all the Holy Days.
