Today I have been seeing posts from my friends enumerating all the things for which they are grateful. I have thought about it and there is nothing that I am NOT grateful for. My life is lived to honor God and although I am sure I miserably fail every day of my life, I start the day with prayers of thanksgiving and praise. However there are a few things I do want to say to you, my reader.
I am glad that God loves me and I am very happy and grateful for Lamentations 3:21-23 “This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” I also take advantage of Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” In the days in which we live there are many things to fear yet God said “Fear not, I am with you, be not dismayed for I am your God. “ Isaiah 41:10
I am grateful for those who read me and even more grateful for those of you who take the time to leave a comment or send a message via Facebook or email! You give me purpose and a daily goal of reaching out and helping in whatever small way I can from my kitchen table on my computer! Hearing from you absolutely makes my day! When you ask me to pray I do not take it lightly or pass it off, I pray for you and I ask God to give me something relevant for every day that I post so that your time is not wasted by clicking on my website, I only wish I knew who you all were!
I’ve been so excited for Christmas to come but Thanksgiving is coming on the 24th so let’s prepare, decorate, cook and I pray that we all have the very most blessed Thanksgiving we ever had, that we will make the most wonderful, warm memories and that when you lay your head on your pillow on that Thursday night, you will be satisfied that everything you did, whether you are the cook or the guy on the couch watching football, turned out just right!
