Psalms 106:1 "Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever." Psalm 100:1-5 "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."

With all of my heart I believe this wonderful Psalm. We are to give thanks for the goodness of God. We are blessed in our church, in our family and in our nation, the United States of America by the goodness of God. Of all people that should give thanks ours
should be at the top of the list! It is not uncommon to compile lists at Christmas and draw up a list of resolutions of New Years, but there is another list we often overlook: a Thanksgiving Day list of all for
which we are thankful.

Here is a list that several housewives compiled.

They wrote that that were especially thankful for:

For smoke alarms because they let you know when the
turkey is done.

Now our list might not be the same as theirs but I am convinced that if we began to make a list, we would find that we have much more for which to
be thankful than our material possessions. Like you I' sure my list would include the major things: life, health, family, friends and the nation we live in, despite all its flaws. But even more than that, I'm thankful for my salvation, my church family, and the mercy God showers on me each day.

With Jesus we have so much to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day! We have His presence, His promises and His power available every single day
that we live. He is faithful and He is true. We can count on Him. He is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in time of trouble. He is our high tower; He is alpha and omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last, the one who was and is and evermore shall be. He had no beginning and He has no end. He is the master of the mighty, He is the hero of the heroes, He is the rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valley, He is the bright and the morning star. Some day he will descend from heaven with a shout and w ...
