Thankful Thursday - 11/19/09

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Wow! Can you believe it? Next week is Thanksgiving! NEXT WEEK!!!! I've decided not to post next week for Thanksgiving and want to do a little something different this week. Normally, and according to the rules, I post five things for which I am thankful. This week, I'd like to share a poem God impressed upon me several years ago. It is just as timely today as it was then. I pray you are blessed by it as I am.

I'm thankful for so many things
It's hard to pick just one;
But if I had to choose,
It'd be salvation through God's Son.


The past is now behind me,
I only look ahead
The fulfillment of God's promises
To the place I'll rest my head.


Some say there is no God
Or He didn't create the earth,
But I am living proof you see
God still creates in new birth.


So when you give your thanks today
And you're not sure what to say,
Look around at all the wondrous works
God has brought your way.

The sun, the moon, the heavens and earth,
The flowers and the trees,
The food upon your table,
The child upon your knee.


I'm thankful, Lord, Your grace abounds,
You pardon, You set free,
I'm thankful, Lord, You loved and forgave
An unworthy sinner - me.
Author SusanD


God's blessings to you, your family, and your friends as we enter into the precious holiday seasons ahead. Be sure to tell them today, This Day, how much you love them and how much they are loved by Jesus.

Peace and Joy,
Susan

Psalm 1:1-2 (NIV) 1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers  2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.

What a beautiful and heart felt prayer/poem. I'm assuming, you are the author? Would you perhaps, give me permission to print this off giving you the recognition and read it to my bible study girls this evening?

Love to you and Happy Thanksgiving!
