And His truth endures to all generations. Psalm 100
Surely goodness and mercy shall pursue me all the days of my life.
Gratitude We often neglect to tell those who matter most how much God blesses us through their lives.
Our family relationships are richer when we express our gratitude to God for them and tell them so.
Gratitude starts with humility, acknowledging that we enjoy blessings because of God's mercies.
A friend's personally designed Christmas card read, " Thou hast given us so much.
Give us one thing more...a grateful heart."
Reflect on every person for whom you are grateful and for what you are grateful.
Take out pen and paper, and share the overflow of your heart with your family.
Your Thanksgiving blessing will become a treasured legacy.
Pray with me, " Lord, make my heart a habitation where gratitude sings."
These thoughts will get you started.
Your own journal of gratitude will be longer and much more specific.
Father, from whom every family on earth is named, we give thanks-
