Encouraging words of the day –
Father, we celebrate this day as a nation of people who have been blessed more than any other people on the face of the earth and at any time. We acknowledge you as the giver of the good we so easily take for granted. Forgive us as we are a forgetful people. Grant us on this Thanksgiving Day the time to reflect on all the ways you have blessed each of us who has gathered. Increase our understanding of your ways, defeat us when we use our blessings for selfish gain, and remind us to love one another.
Thank you for providing all that we need for life and godliness. Make us to be a light and a blessing to the nations of the world. We acknowledge you as the only true and living God.
We pray this in the name of your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
To all my blogging friends: Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful for your friendship today and every day. My husband and I will be spending Thanksgiving at my sister’s home today along with my parents, my other sister and her son and daughter, and of course, my sister’s family. I made this little turkey hanging for my sister. I made one for myself as well. Maybe we’ll be able to make a mini-quilt to hang on our hanger each month…hum, Ida?
That is all.
