I will start out by dashing any hopes that you might have had that the Senses Novels were going to be on sale for Black Friday. That isn’t going to happen, at least this year. As most of you know the price of the books is going up after the first of the year, so maybe in 2017 I will discount them for the day after Thanksgiving. No, this installment is about another couple of Black Fridays.
Many people don’t know that the day of our Lord’s crucifixion, the day we traditionally call ‘Good Friday’ is also known as Black Friday. There was another Black Friday, and this also happened in November.
It was a terrible and tragic day for the United States of America. It was November 22, 1963. The day that President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed by an assassin’s bullet. Only six short days later, with a nation still in shock and mourning, our country would be celebrating Thanksgiving. That year, a lot of people didn’t know what they were supposed to be thankful for.
My books, the Senses Novels paint a bleak future for mankind. Every day is ‘black’ after the turning point is reached. Still, within the pages of the series is a thread of hope, heroes that rely on the power of the Almighty to guide and to help them. Heroes that are thankful for the saving power of the Lord and for the people that they most dearly love. When we pray during out Thanksgiving meal, aren’t we doing the same?
By the time you read this, Thanksgiving will probably be over for most of you this year, but it doesn’t have to be. If we are thankful each day for what we have, have been given and share that with others, then we are showing true thankfulness.
We are entering a season that is filled with cheer and joy for most but is hard for others. I will most likely bring this subject up again the closer we get to Christmas, but I want you to look around and see the needs of others. If you want to really honor God, then it’s time for you, the person reading this, to become someone’s hero. All you have to do is reach out.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
