Happy Thanksgiving

I just wanted to make a quick post to say Happy Thanksgiving, from my wife and I, to the subscribers and passersby of this blog.

Today, we can remember and be thankful for God's abundant provision in our lives as we sit at the table, to eat a hearty meal. When put into perspective, His abundance has been, His continuous provision of food, clothing, shelter and in this economy, a job. Quantifying such abundance should not be too difficult either, though not necessary.

Even more though, is the thanksgiving of praise for the mercy and love God has shown toward us because, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Psalm 100:4.

"So long as we are receivers of mercy we must be givers of thanks. Mercy permits us to enter his gates; let us praise that mercy." Charles Spurgeon, The Treasury of David.


Let all that is within us, bless the Holy Name of the Lord, for the great things He has done for us.
