We say with hearts full and rejoicing, “Happy Thanksgiving to you!”

May your hearts overflow with joy and thanksgiving as you reflect on all that our Lord has given to you! May your life be rich with gratitude. As Macuff said “Cultivate the thankful spirit!  It will be to you a perpetual feast.”

We thank our Lord for His glorious presence in our lives!  We thank Him for our ministry in Georgia and for those that He has given us that support us so faithfully and stand with us as we take the Gospel to Georgia!  We thank our God for the body of believers everywhere that love Him and look for His soon appearing!  We thank Him for His mercies, our churches, our government, our health and the strength that He gives us!  We thank our God for our families and that it is “in Him that we move and live and have our being!”   Let us enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise.  Be thankful to Him and bless His name!  The Lord reigns!  Let the earth rejoice!  Let the multitude of isles be glad!

Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples.  Give to the Lord glory and strength.  Give to the Lord the glory due His name.  Bring an offering and come into His courts.  Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!  Tremble before Him, all the earth.  Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”  Let the heavens rejoice and let the earth be glad!  Let the sea roar and all its fullness!  Let the field be joyful and all that is in it.  Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord.  For He is coming…He is coming to judge the world with righteousness.

As I sit before Him in the quietness of my heart, I wish there was a better way to tell Him, and you, how grateful I am!  It is so hard to express my gratitude, but until we reach heaven where thoughts can be adequately expressed, “Thank you, Lord!” will have to do! I sing to Him a new song of praise and thanksgiving! 

Joyfully and forever grateful,
Jan
