Thanksgiving is a weird time in Jamaica. Obviously, Thanksgiving is only an American holiday and so we have none of the pomp surrounding this time of year. Therefore, there are times that we lose touch with the fact that it is time for Thanksgiving. Our Jamaican friends sometimes remember and will comment about eating Turkey or say "Happy Thanksgiving," but beyond that there are no reminders. We are planning a big meal with our team here, but it isnt the same. But, as we always say on Thanksgiving day, the giving of thanks is not bound by dates and it certainly is not bound by geography. So, with no chill in the air, no driving to an uncles house, and no national holiday, we will be giving Thanks. We are joining you in giving praise to our Lord who is worthy.
