I am thankful for you!

November 2017

I am thankful for you!

November is a great month for me, a month for me to give thanks.  Within a handful of days Rod and I celebrate our wedding anniversary, my birthday and Thanksgiving.

I once received a thank you note from a friend that said, “this is my thank you dance’. The note showed a stick figure in a somewhat contorted form. This is one of my favorite thank yous but not because of the picture but because of the words my friend wrote.

Aren’t thank you notes wonderful? They are wonderful to receive and read and reread.  With November upon us I am thinking more and more about being thankful, and there is so much for me to be thankful for.

Scripture includes many passages about being thankful and giving thanks.  I specifically enjoy;

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Psalm 107:1

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever

Psalm 100:1-5

A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; 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 steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Below are listed 90 passages that relate in some fashion to thanks.  I encourage you to read three a day for the month of November. Dig into these passages with your heart and your mind and Give Thanks.
