Happy Thanksgiving!

 I love this holiday because of the reminder to us of how we should live everyday: Overflowing with Gratitude!

 This quote came to my attention recently and so I will share it with you:

"The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts.  No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving."  ~H.U. Westermayer

I love the perspective of that. No matter what condition we are in- we need to give thanks to God.
As for us, I feel overabundantly blessed! God is so good! I hope you are seeing that in your lives as well!

Psalm 100

1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Our Thanksgiving service was about giving thanks in 'all circumstances' which is something the Pilgrims most certainly knew something about.
