Cornucopia1

PSALM  100…….SHOUT  FOR  JOY  TO  THE  LORD,  ALL  THE  EARTH.  WORSHIP  THE  LORD  WITH  GLADNESS;  COME  BEFORE  HIM  WITH  JOYFUL  SONGS.  KNOW  THAT  THE  LORD  IS  GOD.  IT  IS  HE  WHO  HAS  MADE  US,  AND  WE  ARE  HIS;  WE  ARE  HIS  PEOPLE,  THE  SHEEP  OF  HIS  PASTURE.  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.

WHERE  DID  THE  YEAR  GO?…. trans-smiley-tiny  IT  IS  ALMOST  OVER!…… AND  MOST  OF  US  ARE  ABOUT  TO  ENJOY  A  WONDERFUL  CELEBRATION  WITH  FAMILY  AND  FRIENDS  OVER  A  DELICIOUS  MEAL…… TURKEY  AND  ALL  THE  TRIMMINGS….. I  AM  SOOO  THANKFUL  THAT  THE  UNITED  STATES  CONGRESS  IN  1941  DECLARED  THAT  THE  LAST  THURSDAY  OF  NOVEMBER  WOULD  BE  A  LEGAL  HOLIDAY…… FOR  ME  THE  DAY  HAS   ALWAYS  BEEN  ABOUT  GETTING  TOGETHER  WITH  FAMILY,  FRIENDS  AND  LOVED  ONES  AS  WE   EXPRESS  THANKS  FOR  ALL  GOD  HAS  DONE….. I  READ  ABOUT  THE  FAMILY  THAT  WAS  GATHERED  AROUND  THE  TABLE  FOR  THE  TURKEY  DINNER….. THEY  WERE  ASKED  TO  HOLD  HANDS  AS  THEY  WOULD  PRAY…. BUT  BEFORE  THE  PRAYER…. EACH  PERSON  WAS  ASKED  TO  SAY  JUST  ONE  THING  THEY  WERE  THANKFUL  FOR…… EACH  ONE  EXPRESSED  HEARTFELT  THINGS…. WHEN  IT  WAS  TIME  FOR  A  LITTLE  BOY  TO  SAY  WHAT  HE  WAS  MOST  THANKFUL  FOR…… HE  SPOKE  VERY  HAPPILY…. I  AM  JUST  THANKFUL  THAT  I  AM  NOT  THE  TURKEY”  trans-smiley-tiny

Family Praying at Thanksgiving

 WELL,  AS  CHRISTIANS  WE  HAVE  MUCH  TO  THANK  GOD  FOR….. AND  WE  MUST  NOT  THANK  HIM  ONLY  ON  THANKSGIVING….. BUT  EACH  AND  EVERY  DAY…. LET  ME  GIVE  YOU  SOMETHING  TO  THINK  ABOUT…. WHAT  IF……. ALL  WE  HAVE  TODAY  IS  WHAT  WE  THANKED  GOD  FOR  YESTERDAY…. WE  WOULD  STILL  BE  BLESSED….. BUT  LET’S  THANK  HIM  THROUGHOUT  THE  DAY……. EACH  DAY.  I  AM  CERTAIN  THAT  YOU  HAVE  HEARD  IT  BEFORE…. BUT  LET’S  LIVE  IN  AN  ATTITUDE  OF  GRATITUDE…. HE  HAS  BEEN  SOOOO  FAITHFUL  TO  US…. AND  WHEN  WE  WORSHIP  GOD…. IT  IS  NOT  ONLY  AN  EXPRESSION  FOR  ALL  THAT  HE  HAS  DONE… BUT  WE  ARE  DECLARING  THAT  OUR  TRUST  IS  COMPLETELY  IN  HIM…. AND  THAT  IS  WHAT  HE  WANTS…….

 PHILIPPIANS 4:6  ~ BE  ANXIOUS  FOR  NOTHING,  BUT  IN  EVERYTHING  BY  PRAYER  AND  SUPPLICATION,  WITH  THANKSGIVING,  LET  YOUR  REQUESTS  BE  MADE  KNOWN  TO  GOD…

THERE  SEEMS  TO  PUMPKIN  PATCHES  EVERYWHERE.. I  LOVE  TO  SEE  THEM…… AND  WHEN  SOMEONE  SENT  ME THIS….. I  JUST  HAD  TO  SHARE  IT  WITH  YOU…. BEING  A  CHRISTIAN  IS  KINDA  LIKE  BEING  A  PUMPKIN….. GOD  PICKS  US  FROM  THE  PATCH,  BRINGS  US  IN,  AND  WASHES  ALL  THE  DIRT  OFF …..THEN  HE  CUTS  OFF  THE  TOP  AND  SCOOPS  OUT  ALL  THE  YUCKY  STUFF.   HE  REMOVES  THE  SEEDS  OF  DOUBT,  HATE,  AND  GREED.  FINALLY  HE  CARVES  A  SMILING  FACE  AND  PUTS  HIS  LIGHT  INSIDE  OF  US  TO  SHINE  FOR  THE  WORLD  TO  SEE……. ISN’T  THAT  TRUE?  trans-smiley-tiny

LATELY,  I  HAVE  BEEN  SINGING  REGULARLY  THAT  AWESOME  OLD  HYMN….. THAT  IS  KNOWN  AROUND  THE  WORLD… AND  FOLK  LOVE  TO  HEAR  IT  PLAYED  ESPECIALLY  ON  BAGPIPES…. “AMAZING  GRACE”…. (IT  IS  ON  MY  HYMNS  CD….CLICK  HERE)….  EPH.  2:8    “IT  IS  BY  GRACE  THAT  WE  ARE  SAVED….THRU  FAITH  AND  THAT  NOT  OF  OURSELVES….IT  IS  A  GIFT  FROM  GOD……SALVATION  IS  NOT  A  REWARD  FOR  ANYTHING  WE  HAVE  DONE…..BUT  RATHER  WHAT  JESUS  CHRIST  DID  BACK  ON  CALVARY”…  SO  THAT  IS  CERTAINLY  WHAT  I  AM  THANKFUL  FOR  AND  I  TELL  GOD  EVERYDAY…. “FATHER…. THANKS  FOR  SENDING  YOUR  ONLY  SON  JESUS  TO  EARTH  TO  REDEEM  US”…  REMEMBER  WHEN  WE  WERE  GROWING   UP…. THAT  WHEN  WE  WERE  GIVEN  SOMETHING…… IF  WE  DID  NOT  SAY  THOSE  TWO  WORDS….. WE  WOULD  HEAR:  “WHAT  DO  YOU  SAY?”….. AND  OF  COURSE,  THEN  WE  WOULD  SAY  “THANK  YOU”  trans-smiley-tiny …..TODAY  THOSE  TWO  WORDS  ARE  NOT  HEARD  OFTEN  ENOUGH….. AND  ESPECIALLY  NOT  ADDRESSED  ENOUGH  TO  GOD…… LET’S  UTTER  THEM  TO  HIM  CONTINUALLY  AS  WE  DO  HAVE  MUCH  TO  BE  THANKFUL  FOR….

I THESSALONIANS  5:18  ~  IN  EVERYTHING  GIVE  THANKS,  FOR  THIS  IS  THE  WILL  OF  GOD  IN  CHRIST  JESUS  FOR  YOU.

PSALM  103  ~ 
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

UNTIL  NEXT  TIME,
