Give Thanks...Again

Today we celebrate Thanksgiving in America. A day to stop and think of what we have and what we are thankful for. So here’s my list.

I’m thankful for my family. Although we are separated by many miles, the bond we share is far greater than words can express.

I’m thankful for America. While it may not be perfect, it is better than most countries in the world.

I’m thankful for my local church, ministry staff, volunteers and others who make up the body of Christ.

I’m thankful for the Church around the world who are willing to sacrifice so much in order to share the Gospel with those seeking salvation.

I’m thankful for you, my blog reader. Without you, my words would simply be floating around in the great big space of the internet.

I’m thankful for the gifts and talents that I use on a daily basis to share God’s message with others.

I’m thankful for God. My Creator, Provision, and Father.

I’m thankful for the Holy Spirit. My Comforter, Counselor, and Guide.

I’m thankful for Jesus. My Redeemer, Savior, and Friend.

Today I stop to thank God for all that He’s provided for me and my family. I’m sure you will do the same today. But let’s not just be thankful on this one day. Let’s live our lives with grateful hearts.

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” (Psalm 100:4-5 – NIV)

Grace and peace be yours in abundance,



  1. Well said, Donna. Happy Thanksgiving!
