THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING

The day has come and gone and the families have departed for home save for some who will shortly leave and, reluctantly prepare for the daily grind.

It is strange when you have a large group with all the activity thrust upon you. The day that is set aside for feasting and giving of thanks - - then comes silence after all the guests have gone.

Dealing with the leftovers can be a formidable task, not wanting to be wasteful you try to salvage what you can.

How many ways can you fix the leftovers is the question, and when will the stomach rebel against the remaining fragments?

Always waiting in the wings is the guilt of our abundance when there are those who suffer lack.

Having shared in several ways (even providing some extra dog food for the SPCA) squelches that guilt somewhat.

The kickoff for Christmas shopping is in full swing, and the stores welcome the bargain shoppers en mass. The day after always carries with it a bit of a let down and the need to compensate in some way seems to be the order of the day. After many purchases comes buyer’s remorse, the “Day after.”

As I think of all the days whether holidays or exciting special times like when the daughter gets married, and then the “Day after” must be dealt with.

There is a day when the church will be raptured and the “day after” must be dealt with by those who remain.

At first there will be the let down, and the then euphoria of possessing all of the wealth left behind by the saints.

Those who bought into the act of “Neglecting their salvation” will have to deal with the “Day after” - - each day for the day of salvation will be no more.

2Corinthians 6:2 Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of Salvation.
