Thanksgiving

Every Thanksgiving morning we have a special service at our chapel where we share some of the wonderful blessings of God in our lives over the past year, and every evening after our family has dinner together, we sit around in a circle and share within our family.What things make you most thankful? For me, I think the greatest source of joy is always the same: I’m so thankful that God loves me (and the whole world) and sent His son to die for me (and the whole world) so that anyone who believes can be reconciled to God and enjoy eternal life. I’m thankful for my wonderful family, friends, and countless material blessings, but nothing compares to the peace deep down in my soul that comes from being loved by God and feeling the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life.

“Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good, for his mercy endures forever.” Psalm 106:1

“This world is not my home I’m just a passing through.
My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue.
The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door,
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.
Oh Lord you know I have no friend like you.
If heaven’s not my home then Lord what will I do?
The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door,
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore!”  (Jim Reeves)
