Thanksgiving 2010

I really wanted to get my Thanksgiving list posted last week but the storm that hit Kitsap county left me without power most of the week. Better late than never, right?

What a year this has been for me. It was my first year on my own as a single/working mom. It's been rough at times, but God continues to meet our needs and shower us with His bountiful blessings.

So many things to be thankful for:

The ABC's of Thanksgiving

Although things are not perfect

Because of trial or pain

Continue in thanksgiving

Do not allow your lips to complain.

Even when times are hard—

Fierce winds are bound to blow—

God is forever able;

Hold on to what you know.

Imagine life without His love.

Joy would cease to be.

Keep thanking Him for the things

Love imparts to thee.

Move out of "Camp Despair."

No weapon that is known

On earth can yield the power

Praise can do alone.

Quit living in the past;

Redeem the time at hand.

Start every day with worship.

Thanksgiving is God’s command!

Until we see him coming

Victorious in the sky,

We'll run the race with gratitude,

Xalting the Lord most high.

Yes, there will be times good and bad,

but . . .

Zion awaits where no one is ever sad.
