November 2012

Thank You God!

I can't believe another Thanksgiving is here, but as it comes we have an opportunity to pause and give thanks for all that we have!

Praise the Lord!
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures for ever.

-Psalm 106:1

Thanksgiving Blessing

May you be blessed this month as we give thanks for all that we are given!

Abundant Blessing
We thank you for the turkey,
The gravy and the dressing.
Dear Lord, this table overflows
With Thy abundant blessing.
Let us always be aware
That all gifts come from You,
And may we serve Your heavenly will
In everything we do.
Amen.
