Thanksgiving – 2022

Psalm 136

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

For His mercy endures forever. 

Oh, give thanks to the God of gods!

For His mercy endures forever. 

Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords!

For His mercy endures forever:

To Him who alone does great wonders,

For His mercy endures forever; 

To Him who by wisdom made the heavens,

For His mercy endures forever; 

To Him who laid out the earth above the waters,

For His mercy endures forever; 

To Him who made great lights,

For His mercy endures forever— 

The sun to rule by day,

For His mercy endures forever; 

The moon and stars to rule by night,

For His mercy endures forever.

Psalm 136:1-9 NKJV


I have good news and I have Good News.  First the good news.

I heard about each of them in January. (See “It’s January .”) Two babies, Finley and Danielle. Both helpless. They had problems. Big problems. Life threatening. Both in need of miracles. I followed their progress. I prayed.

Finley needed a new liver. Danielle was born three months and several pounds early. That was January and now it’s May. 

The good news is both are alive and both are doing well. Both have a ways to go. Most importantly, both are home from long stays in hospitals. Good news. Great news.

Now the Good News. The Creator of heaven and earth, God, one who first loved Finley and Danielle, he knew them before they were in their mothers’ womb. He preserved their lives and has plans for them. The two girls’ journeys continue and God walks with them. As he does with us. That’s Good News. That’s today’s gift.

Thanksgiving Day – 2021

It’s Thanksgiving Day. It’s a new day that the Lord has made. There’s certainly a lot for which to be thankful. We all have our own list, I’m sure. Hopefully, we’ve had the opportunity to share it with those we love. No doubt those we love are at the top our list.

And, let’s not forget to whom we owe our thanks and why.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning;

Great is your faithfulness.

I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”‘ Lamentations 3:22-24

Today’s gift.
