Thankful

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. 
                                                                              ~G.K. Chesterton
 

O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.  Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

Psalm 95:1-2

 
Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord
(Love the choir “robes.”)
 
Thankful for the breath to form the words.
Thankful for the life that You have given us.
Thankful for the survivors all over the world.
Thankful for rainbow friendships.
Thankful for family, blood and adopted.
Thankful for a place to write and praise God.
Thankful for the gifts that I have been given.
Thankful for you who read.
Thankful for you who pray.
Thankful for you that I pray for.
Thankful for children.
Thankful for those who challenge me to stay connected to You.
Thankful for unexpected joy in my day.
Thankful for the unexpected sorrow.
Thankful in the storm.
Thankful in the sun.
Thankful for the choir in which words and music meet in the cry, in the raised hands.
 
Your turn:
Thankful for _______________________.
Because of Him,
Linda
