"Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms."
Psalm 95:2 

Today I am thankful to God for all His blessings. 
For family, shelter, food, clothes. 
For jobs, friends, purpose, health.

There are many more blessings I can count today.
My goal is not to let my thanksgiving be heard today only.
I want to be a thankful person every day.

God is good every day and I want to be thankful daily. 
I also want to express my thankfulness with the words I read in the Bible. 

The Bible is filled with expressions of thanksgiving.
I want to borrow those words until they become my own. 

I can't be thankful and cranky at the same time. 
I want to be thankful because of who God is to me. 
I want to become a grateful person because He is worthy of my Thanksgiving. 

As we pause to celebrate, 
let us remember we can grow in our thanksgiving.
It all starts by recognizing who God is to us. 
Let us always have Thanksgiving on our lips.  

Happy Thanksgiving! Thank God for everything!
