Hello friends– I love this cheery book about a family all arriving at Grandma’s house for a rollicking Thanksgiving day. And I have a thankful heart for this very first Thanksgiving that we’ll have a grand-girl, Baby Mae, sitting at our turkey laden grandma table–along with our parents and our own kids. So glad.
Looking back on the year, there’s plenty of motives to give thanks–time with our family and dear friends, a cozy home and small daily joys. But when it comes down to my most profound heartfelt thankfulness, it would have to be that our God is the holy eternal God, the “same yesterday, today and forever.”
“Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before him with joyful singing. Know that the Lord Himself is God;”
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are his people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him; bless His name.
For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting,
And his faithfulness to all generations.”
