Carolyn’s Thanks

November 23, 2016

Tomorrow is a day to give thanks. It’s not the turkey, parade or shopping. It is a day to Praise The Lord for His goodness. I am thankful for my Savior, Jesus. God has blessed in the past year in spite of many trials. I am thankful for all my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and in law family. God has given me the most loving caring family. I am thankful for my 2 sons that now reside in Heaven along and my dear husband, Tom, and many other family members. The pain of not having them here on earth can be excruciating but knowing we will be together again softens the pain. Thank you Lord for the Holy Spirit who gives comfort in the dark times. Friends and workers in SOS are more than I can count. The encouragement from them has been a blessing. If I listed all the Praise to The Lord it would take a volume of chapters so I will just wish to all Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

The Forgotten Holiday 

November 19, 2016

It is a few days before Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, this holiday has been almost forgotten in America today. It gets lost between Halloween and Christmas as commercialism has taken over this true and only American Holiday. The pilgrims stopped to give thanks to God for safety and provisions as they survived a perilous journey and a very hard time getting started in a new land. Many did loose their lives but the remaining people knew it was God who allowed them to survive.

Take time in these coming days before Thanksgiving to stop and be thankful to God for a specific thing each day. Let us not get into the trap of using this special holiday to just eat turkey and look for the shopping deals. Thank the Lord for His bountiful blessings.

2 Corinthians 9:11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.

Thanksgiving

 Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness:

come before his presence with singing.

Know 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.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,

and into his courts with praise:

be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;

and his truth endureth to all generations. 

We Gather Together

We Gather Together Hymn

We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing;
He chastens and hastens His will to make known.
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing.
Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own.

Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine;
So from the beginning the fight we were winning;
Thou, Lord, were at our side, all glory be Thine!

We all do extol Thee, Thou Leader triumphant,
And pray that Thou still our Defender will be.
Let Thy congregation escape tribulation;
Thy Name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!

This hymn reminds me of Thanksgiving. As a small child I remember going to church and singing this hymn. Today I am thankful for family. Some of them will gather tomorrow to eat and have fellowship. Most of them will not be with me but I carry their love in my heart. My prayer for everyone who reads this will have a Happy Thanksgiving and know that the Lord Jesus is also with you even if your loved ones cannot be there.

Psalms 69:30
I will praise the name of God with a song,
and will magnify him with thanksgiving.

2 Corinthians 9:11

What If?

Yesterday is past but did you thank God for yesterday’s blessings?
At the end of the day we were able to thank the Lord for the fellowship of family, God’s creation as we watched hummingbirds, chickadees, cardinals, and raccoons all from our porch.
Today is a new day. Look for the blessings of this day even if it is just a small blessing.
In times of trials in life, the blessings of God are always there if we open our eyes to look for them.
