Thanksgiving even now

Psalm 116:1-2, 12-19

Thanksgiving is more than a holiday in November, and it is more than something we express when we get what we want, when things are going well, or while we count our blessings. There is still much to be thankful for, even now, especially now, and not in spite of our pain, suffering, and anxiety. There is room in our relationship with God for us to express both lament and thankfulness simultaneously, just as Psalm 116 demonstrates.
