for all God has given, so undeserved, but in His grace, He gives many reasons to give thanks...

most thankful this Thanksgiving for His Word...that we can know reading the Psalms the last few weeks, I get to know a little more of who He is...

He is the Holy One, a Just and Righteous Judge, His Statues are right and commandments are pure...His ways are Perfect. He is the King of Glory and Lord of Hosts, King Forever on His Forever Throne. He is the Rock, Unchanging, Constant, and Faithful Sustainer. He is Powerful, Majestic, the Maker of heaven and earth, by a word of the Lord they were made and they declare His glory. He is an Upright Warrior and Avenger. He is the Merciful Most High, Gentle, Generous, Defender of the weak, and full of Grace....Great is His goodness and Marvelous is His Kindness. He is the Beautiful Savior, Deliverer, Rescuer, Healer, Counselor, Advocate, Helper, Redeemer, Restorer, and Friend. He is the Fountain of Life, Living Water, Light of the world, our Hope, and the Truth.

He is my Shield, Protector, a Fortress and Hiding Place and Lifter of my head. He hears me and knows my heart and mind. He Teaches and Leads...He makes my ways straight, establishes my steps, and sets my feet on a Rock. He is my Salvation.

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor 15:57

Happy Thanksgiving!

a book craft, by Erin

favorite line: so if you are in pain, my dad will ask for your name and pray for you.

She asked where I was Friday night and I told her I was wrapping gifts, she asked if they were for her, and I said no, for boys and girls who won't get presents on Christmas, and she said, even if they're good? and i said, even if they're good, they won't get presents unless we send them one...
Operation Christmas Child sends a present with the Gospel...the greatest gift of all.
