Thanksgiving

Advertisements

Give thanks to the Lord for he is good and his mercies endures forever.

Thanksgiving is a selfless act that sees beyond what you have not received.

Thanksgiving is a choice once made brings joy and great fulfilment to both parties involved.

A grateful heart is a positive heart.

A grateful person is a graceful person.

I would rather spend time with one who is thankful than spend time with one who is resentful.

Ten lepers met Jesus and pleaded for healing.They were given a command to go and shew themselves to the priest.Great was their faith they never hesitated but started the journey in obedience to the Lord’s command.

Alas!along the way they were healed I imagine their jubilation as they proudly displayed the healing to one another.

One of them a Samaritan to be specific may have raised the idea of going back to the source of their healing and give thanks. I imagine his idea was drowned by the others suggesting maybe to visit families or tour the city they lived outside it’s walls.

Yes!only one came back to Jesus to say thank you. No matter how much we receive from the Lord, thanksgiving is a way to remain connected to the source of your resources.

Choose to give thanks.

Live a thankful life.

I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. Sometimes I wonder, 'if I'd become everything I wanted as a girl, Would I be better than this or caught up in a different whirl?' I close my eyes and hear the voices of those who look up to me, The hopeful eyes in their pictures.....I think I can see what they see, I want to wake up one morning and see the people I care about happy. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I pretend I'm not hurt even when I am, 'Cause when fighting ain't an option,the least we can do is keep calm. There're times when I feel terribly overwhelmed, But bless everything through which I've helmed, There's been God, there's been you, to pull me through. I oft'n worry that the things I so believe in may not be true, And you can trust me to cry at the idea of failing in what I set out to do. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I understand that it's hard to please everyone, But if I could, there's nothing I'd want more than to see a smile on the face of every man. I believe and so say everyone deserves a second chance, I judge not...at least never at first glance. I dream of the day when I can look at my life and say 'this is where I wanted to be. I have, I do, I always will try the best in everyone to see, And I hope at the end of my life, I will not have left a trail of broken hearts behind me.
