O GIVE THANKS

source


HAPPY THANKSGIVING friends, 
as we gather around the table; 
let us be thankful to the Lord 
for all our wonderful blessings.

I am so thankful to the Lord, how He has blessed us with wonderful health, keeping us safe , our home, my daughters and son (in-laws), our sweet grand children, my husband  job, food on our table and our wonderful church, that preaches us the truth.  There are so many more things I am so thankful for.

I am so thankful for you blog friends;  I have met so many wonderful ladies on here.   Your blog's have inspired me and encouraged my heart. Thank you for that.

We started a new family tradition early this year, each time we gather around our table. We have to tell 3 or 4 different things we are thankful for.  We can't repeat the ones we have said before. Not just at Thanksgiving, but every day all year long. We want our  family to have a thankful heart, a heart that loves others, and a heart to give.

O Give Thanks unto the Lord:
Call upon his name:
Make known his deeds among the people.
Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him:
Talk ye of all His wondrous works.
Glory ye in His Holy Name:
Let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
Seek the Lord, and his strength:
 Seek His face evermore.
Remember His marvellous work that he hath done; 
Psalm 105:1-5

From my Farmhouse to your homes have a Blessed and Wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. Our family loves this tradition. In the years since we have done this, we have loved ones who have passed on, so for those years we thanked the Lord for their presence, their love, and witness of their faith in all of our lives.

    Yes, we have so much to be grateful for, and even though I have a very full and busy next few days, I am so thankful and looking forward to all the happy faces and wonderful conversation at our food laden Thanksgiving table!

    Wishing you and your loved ones a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!
