Celebrate By Eating

"Thanksgiving with Family" photo by Sally L. Smith

 Then you and your family must celebrate by eating a meal...to thank the Lord your God for giving you such a good harvest. 
Deuteronomy 26:11 CEV

Though a little outdated, this photo shows some of my immediate family and some of my husband's on Thanksgiving Day 2007.  Our family loves to celebrate any occasion by eating.  
I chose the Contemporary English version of the Bible because of the wording since most versions just say "celebrate together."
Eating has been the traditional way to be thankful for harvest but any meal with family should be a celebration.  I can't wait to reunite with this group at Thanksgiving and then celebrate Christmas with all of our children and grandchildren.  
Bring on the harvest and Christmas!
