A Season of Thanks

As we approach the week set aside to give thanks, it is good to remember that living each day with a thankful heart is powerful. While praying with my family last night, our sweet daughter prayed,

"Lord, we all have so much already, but we sometimes want more. You have given us everything we need. Help us, Lord, to be thankful. Help us move out of the season of greed into the season of thanks. Help us with this, Lord. Help us really understand what it means to be thankful."

I am so thankful for my children, for they help me see God and know His heart. Here's the psalm our eleven year-old son wrote for Bible class.

"Praise be to the Lord. 

He has blessed us. 
Allow Him to be exalted higher than the heavens. 

He cares for His People. 
Make forth great celebrations in His name. 

He has shown us mercy. 
Allow Him a place in your heart. 
He created it and blessed it. 

Thank Him for creation.
He has given us it.

Love Him with all your heart, soul, and mind. 
His love is infinite."


May we be thankful for God's blessings each day and remain in a season of thanks in our hearts.

Thankful,
Dr Mari

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:6,7
