God's Words For US
by Cecelia Lester
We give thanks to you, O God,
We give thanks for your Name is near,
Men tell of your wonderful deeds.
This year, Thanksgiving will be different for a lot of us. Our son came up this past weekend, so we had thanksgiving early. Others are having an abbreviated celebration with household members. Still others choose to defy the guidelines set by the scientists.
Yesterday afternoon, we had to make a trip to the hospital in Indy where I had my surgery last week. On our way out of town, I saw a signboard in front of a church that told the passersby this message: “Thanks-Giving is designed to be a 365-day activity.”
What are some of the many things we have in our lives to be thankful for here in 2020?
Our Church Families
The privilege of having food for our families.
God wakes us up each morning.
God provides us with what we NEED.
As humans, we tend to take things God does for granted. A friend and I have talked about starting the New Year by returning to recording three praises each day. We both believe that we do not give praise to God enough.
One more thought before I finish this. My third-grade teacher talked to us about Thanksgiving. She said something that came back to me a few years ago. “Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for what you have, even if it’s peanut butter and jelly.” That is something to think on.
