thanksgiving-table-423560-mDo you know what is even better than being thankful?

Being thankful brings many benefits, including improved health and better relationships.  But there is something even better than being thankful:
giving thanks.

Many Americans will take a moment to be thankful this coming Thursday. Perhaps they will even list several things which they appreciate. But there will be fewer Americans who actually give thanks, who actually acknowledge and say, “thank You” to our Creator and Sustainer.


Gratitude creates joy,  but an even greater joy comes when we move our eyes from our gifts to the Face of the Giver. Instead of merely liking our gifts, let us thank and adore the Giver of every good gift.


from Psalm 100 (The Message):

On your feet now—applaud God!
Bring a gift of laughter,
sing yourselves into his presence. …

 Enter with the password: “Thank you!”
Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
Thank him. Worship him.

For God is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.



I misspoke on last week’s prayer call. We will not have our usual “Fighting on Our Knees” this week on Thanksgiving Day. If you missed last week’s call, you can listen to the conversation and prayer with Vicki Rose HERE.
