Overflowing Thankfulness

Thursday, November 26, 2009

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations."


Thanksgiving is not a noun.
It is a state of being.
It is a choice;
That is not dependent upon circumstances.


I am thankful.
For my God.
Who loves ME.
And who I fall more and more in love with each day.


He has chosen to bless me tremendously:
Salvation
My husband
My son
My family
My friends
My church
My community.
My challenges. In which I find His grace.


"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful song.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people,
the sheep of his pasture."

Well said, Anna!

If we, who are called out of darkness and into His marvelous light, cannot offer prayers of praise, worship and thanksgiving on this amazing day, then who in the world can?

Let us remember and celebrate His amazing grace on this holy day!

Love you guys! Can't wait to see you!
