As we gather together to celebrate this time of gratitude, today’s offering will be served family style. Or do you call it a buffet, and when did we officially stop using the word smorgasbord?
Anyway our Thanksgiving day edition of “Becoming Today” will include some tasty, tender morsels for you to enjoy and digest.
Setting the table welcoming all who care to partake, today we’ll share some verses involving gratitude for your own personal consumption or to share around your own banquet tables today.
