Homer Simpson’s Thanksgiving Wisdom
post date: November 23, 2011
We all chuckled knowingly because sometimes survival itself is a victory worth celebrating.
That reminded me of Homer Simpson’s famous line whenever Bart would mutter dejectedly, “This is the worst day of my life.” Homer would put his arm about his son’s shoulder, and with fatherly compassion reply, “It’s the worst day of your life so far.”
I just smiled as I typed those words.
Very funny and very true.
Things may be better or worse next year, and they probably will be.
If you have had a wonderful year filled with much joy, answered prayers, and victory after victory, give thanks to the Lord and take nothing for granted.
If you come to Thanksgiving having survived an awful year filled with sadness and setbacks, and if it truly seems like the worst year of your life, give thanks to God that you are still here. And smile if you can.
You never know what the next 12 months will bring.
