I am very thankful this season. It’s more than just about the traditions of turkey and the parade. I have so many things to be grateful for…. so very many.
What am I thankful for?
I am thankful for….
- health insurance
- a wonderful job (I’m not just saying that – I love my job)
- wonderful relationships with people in my life - family, friends, girls in the troop, Mr. M… and my seamstress
- my vehicle – still running strong after 185,000 plus miles
- a warm bed at night
- a home with laughter, tears, good times, and comforting, encouraging words.
I am blessed… beyond measure. So for this Thanksgiving blog post I wanted to share one of my gramma’s favorite scriptures. Here it is in two versions, the Message and King James.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Take time out to show thanks to HIM for all you have to be grateful for.
What are you thankful for?
Psalm 100 (The Message)
A Thanksgiving Psalm
1-2 On your feet now—applaud God! Bring a gift of laughter,
sing yourselves into his presence.
3 Know this: God is God, and God, God.
He made us; we didn't make him.
We're his people, his well-tended sheep.
4 Enter with the password: "Thank you!"
Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
Thank him. Worship him.
5 For God is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever
Psalm 100 (King James Version)
1Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Find yourself… keeping it real.
