Give thanks to the LORD,
for He is good!
His faithful love endures forever!
Psalm 107:1, NLT
It's Thanksgiving, friends . . . a day to pause and give thanks . . . a day to remember that this is the command that God has given for all of our days . . . that we would "be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus." (1 Thess. 5:18, NLT)
It's a day to remember what Jesus said . . . that "in this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world!" (John 16:33)
I'm praying His sweetest blessings over each of you today, and . . .
Continuing to count His endless gifts and grace . . .
1569 warm muffins in the morning
1570 praying with my mom & dad
1571 witnessing the baptism of another long-prayed-for friend
1572 Granny in my mother's kitchen baking yummy cakes and pies
1573 licking the bowl
1574 boys playing ultimate frisbee and basketball for hours
1575 games of Blokus with my firstborn and brother-in-law
1576 leaves changing on the trees
1577 a brand new ball of yarn to knit
1578 family gathered to give thanks
I will thank the LORD with all my heart
as I meet with His godly people.
How amazing are the deeds of the LORD!
All who delight in Him should ponder them.
Everything He does reveals His glory and majesty.
His righteousness never fails.
Psalm 111:1-3, NLT
