Weekend Chorus of Thanks Giving

This weekend in Canada we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. People will gather to eat, and laugh and play games. Here in Manitoba it looks like that may include snowball fights as the flakes keep flying and accumulating.

In the midst of all the feasting and festivities I'm afraid that too few of us stop to consider what the very name of the holiday means - thanks giving - the giving of thanks.

The Word tells us:

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations. Psalm 100:4-5 NKJV

So this weekend I am planning to offer a chorus of gratitude, and a series of posts giving thanks, for I am abundantly blessed and have much to be thankful for. Please join me by adding your lists of thanks in the comments or linking to a post on your blogs.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, today and all days.
Thank You for choosing to die for my sins.
Thank You that each day brings more new beginnings.
Thank You for blessings that I never earned.
I offer my thanks, my worship and praise.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, now and always.
