Give Me the Simple Life: Thanksgiving & Praise


With Thanksgiving only a few days away, I am reminded of one of the great songs of thanksgiving in the Bible—Psalm 100:

“Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness, come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He who has made us and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.”

What blessings are you especially thankful for this year?

  1. I’m thankful for my health. That I still have my husband here with me. We are on our 45th year now. I’m thankful for my family, my home and my church. But most importantly I’m thankful for the grace of God .
    Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
