HAPPY THANKS-LIVING!  

Psalm 146:1 : I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live”

The longer we live, the more we have to thank the Lord for the immense blessings that he gives us each day. Even when we cannot or do not remember them or when we take these blessings for granted, he continues to bless us.  True, we cannot always control our circumstances in life, but we are enabled by Christ to choose our attitude about them as we deal with both our burdens and our blessings.  

That is what Thanks-Living is all about! By faith, we are thankful for a God who is present, always. We are thankful for a Lord who remembers us even when we forget him. We are thankful for the Spirit who is by our side in every struggle, big or small.

My Thanks-Living list this year is made not from what I have but from who has me – God in Christ who continues to love and forgive so much more abundantly above all that I ask or think!

Blessed Thanks-Giving as we give to others what the Lord has given to us – peace and hope and a life of Thanks-Living!

Lord, make every day a Thanks-Giving as we live thankfully and as we sing praises to you as long as we live! Amen.
