Today we are thankful, Lord – for blessings we don’t deserve.

For Your everlasting love.

For Your unconditional forgiveness.

For Your undeserved mercy.

For Your unmerited grace.

For Your unchanging faithfulness.

For Your unwavering promises.

For Your immovable presence.

For You…

“Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.” (Colossians 3:16-17)

“Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him all creatures here below,
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.”

Happy Thanksgiving, my dear brothers and sisters. Have a wonderful day.

HOLIDAY NOTE: Though I will still be posting every day, I am taking a few days off from responding to your comments (but please leave them anyway!) I'll be back Monday.

I’m going to miss you – BOO HOO...

  1. Hi Sharon,

    Happy Thanksgiving, enjoy your holiday - Thank you for all your comments and I do value your friendship too and I am uplifted by it. God Bless- Nita

  2. Sharon, Hope you enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with your family & friends. God bless. I'm grateful to have had our paths cross in blogland.

  3. Thank you. Have a beautiful day and enjoy all the delicious food!

  4. Loved how you did this and how you spelled out "grateful" with all great words to describe our precious Lord!! Much to be thankful for this year, indeed!! Happy Thanksgiving, Sharon!! Enjoy your day and your time away from the computer :)


  5. Hi Sharon,

    I just want to say, "I appreciate the friendship and encouragement you've extended to me." Since I began reading your blog, I have found encouragement from a fellow believer with a genuine passion for Christ-centered living.

    You've shared your relationship with Christ and your family. I've gone camping with you, attended a Christian conference (where you fell but got up), sat next to you on a flight as you explained how the Lord sees ahead of where I'm going, and most recently played jacks with you and your father.

    On this day of Thanks, I give our Saviour thanks for so many blessings, one of which is your friendship.

    I hope you, The Hubs, and the rest of your family and friends continue to be blessed by the love and grace of The Sovereign Lord.

    Blessings and peace.


  6. Dear Sharon,

    May your Thanksgiving weekend be full of meaning and joy for you.


  7. This was beautiful, were the words you wrote in your comment on my last post...

    May you and your family enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

  8. Thanks, dear friends, for your thoughtful words!

    I had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I hope that each of you did, too.

    You each have a special place in my life - as friends, and as fellow followers of our beloved Lord. Thank you for your encouragement...


  9. Hi Sharon -

    I am thankful for -

    Your love for GOD

    and your funny storytelling!

    And as has been said, "That's my story and I'm sticking to it."

  10. Sandra - You are too nice!! Thank you! I am thankful for the wonders of the Internet - that God uses this tool to join together members of His Body. I am VERY thankful for YOU!
