I just want to thank You Lord



Today is Thanksgiving here in the states.

As I sit in my room listening to the happy voices of my children and my mother go back and forth in conversation and laughter, I'm reminded to be "thankful" for the "so-called" small things.

But aren't those small things, really the big and most important thing.


Things like family and generations . . . things like love and sharing in our expression of love to each other.


Thankful that each one of us and those who we love are here another year, able to partake in the breaking of bread and fellowship.


. . . And thankful for the love and memories of those who blessed us with their presence, but have gone on.  The ones who helped in shaping us.


As much as I am thankful for those I love and those who love me, I am most thankful for God's love, mercy and His unfathomable grace.


Had it not been for God bestowing the above attributes on me daily, I would for sure have perished.

So today, I just want to come before my God with arms raised high and a heart bowed low and say, "Thank you God."


While writing this blog post, my heart sings a song that I haven't sung or heard in years.


Would you join me in singing in to yourself today.  


"I come before you today, and there's just one thing that I want to say; thank you Lord.  For all you've given me, for all the blessing that I cannot see, thank you Lord.


With a grateful heart, with a song of praise, with an outstretched arm, I will bless your name.


Thank you, Lord, I just want to thank you Lord.


Thank you, Lord, I just want to thank you Lord.


For all you've done in my life, you took my darkness and gave me your light.  Thank You Lord.


You took my darkness and gave me your light.  Thank You Lord.


You took my sickness and healed all my pain.  Thank You Lord.


Happy Thanksgiving my dear friends :-)
