Happy Monday – and the start of Thanksgiving week here in the States! I hope your menu is planned – perhaps that turkey is already in the freezer…if you are so inclined:) – and your blessings list is already full and spilling onto a second page! I am planning a “part two” of counting my blessing tomorrow. I hope you will stop by again. For today, I am grateful for:
*a great message last night at church – Pastor rehearsed 15 of God’s promises. Great and precious are His promises…and how needful it is to remind ourselves of them often.
*the chance to blog this morning. I thought all was lost last week…but more about that tomorrow.
*those Junior Church kiddos who so blessed me again yesterday morning. They sang two songs and recited Psalm 100. There were just enough “hiccups” to make it adorable!
Have a wonderful day….and a beautiful week!
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. Psalm 100

I appreciate the hiccups in children’s performances, too. Glad you were well blessed by their songs. I am hoping our church will be able to do a Christmas program this year. Hoping maybe I can take my granddaughters with us for the presentation.
So much to be grateful for. Especially grateful for good health this year. And good messages from blogging friends. XO
I love this time of year, and the fact that we seem to be more on the lookout for things to be thankful for. We have so many gifts from the Lord! Too many to even begin to count. I’ve taken to beginning and ending each day in thanksgiving to Him for all that He is and all that He has done. I love being intentionally thankful like this and I always feel closer to the Lord when I am. I wrote about one such moment last week that you read, how the Lord used the passage with the ten lepers in my quiet time.
Is there anything more precious than a wonderful sermon preached by your pastor? Or something that came out of the mouth of a little one? I am sure your kids singing in the service was a blessing to all who were there. Children are so precious and so pure- surely they seem so much nearer to God than we are as adults. Have you ever thought that?
I can’t wait to come back today and read the continuation of this post! I hope your week has gotten off to a great start.
