Happy Thanksgiving!

"Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations."
Psalm 100:4-5

"....Meditate upon His mercies to you from birth. Look at the dangers you have been delivered from, the journeys you have been protected on, the seasonable help He has sent you, the suitable support He has afforded you in distress, the counsel He has given you in doubts, and the comforts He has provided you in sorrow and darkness.....Every breath in your life is a gift of mercy. Do not forget the former favors bestowed on you and your family. An empty perfume bottle still smells when the perfume is gone. Meditate on your present mercies. How many do you enjoy? Your house, family, body, and soul are full of blessings. Think of them particularly, spread them out like jewels to your view. Meditate on how freely they are bestowed, on their fullness and greatness. Your whole life is a bundle of mercies. These stir us up to bless the Giver."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
