There’s a lot to be sad about in life. But there’s also a lot to be glad about. Today I’m happy and thankful to have a church to go to. A place to gather with fellow believers, worship together, and give thanks to the God who saved us…
“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the LORD.'” — Psalm 122:1

Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends! Join with me in giving God thanks by meditating on this beautiful Thanksgiving prayer/poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
We Thank Thee
by: Ralph Waldo Emerson
For flowers that bloom about our feet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For tender grass so fresh, so sweet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For the song of bird and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee. Continue reading “A Beautiful Thanksgiving Blessing [by Ralph Waldo Emerson]”

Love, your daughter

Is your “to do list” packed for the day? Mine is, and several items are already screaming and scrambling for first place. I’m certain many of you can relate.
Let’s take a deep breath before we begin the day and tell God how awesome He is! He should be the most important focus of our day, from which everything else finds its meaning. For in Him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
What’s the most important thing to do today? Praise the Lord! This is why we were created. Let’s acknowledge Him in all we do, thank Him, and delight in Him, for He is worthy of all glory, honor, and praise.
PRAISE THE LORD, oh my soul, with my whole heart I will praise your holy name!
“Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.

“Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf of springtime.” —Martin Luther
Dear friend, when you’re weary from lingering pain, whether emotional or physical, recall to mind the promise of our Lord Jesus Christ: “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” ( John 16:33). Jesus overcame evil through the resurrection from the dead. Through faith in Him we can find the power to overcome our trials. In Christ we have hope! When you think you can’t get through your day, just remember- Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father interceding for you. Pour out your heart to Him. You can do all things through Christ!
