This week we're celebrating Thanksgiving. For me as a first generation American it's a new holiday. It's one that I particularly like. It comes free of the trappings of commercialism which so quickly overwhelmed Christmas.
While reflecting on Advent, I remembered a happening back in the 70s while living in Thailand. Our daughter was taking Thai classical dancing. One day during her class we could hear excited voices outside chanting: “The king is coming! The King is coming! We all ran to the sidewalk in time to see the beloved King of Thailand and his beautiful Queen slowly pass. All too quickly he was gone.
