Giving Thanks Wednesday

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!
Let Israel say, "His steadfast love endures forever."
Let the house of Aaron say, "His steadfast love endures forever."
Let those who fear the Lord say, "His steadfast love endures forever."
Psalm 118:1-4

I don't know what that Psalm does for you but it fills me with
a leaping joy of praise to the God of my salvation! Give Him THANKS for He is good... why? because His steadfast, unmoveable, unchangeable, solid love endures FOREVER. No matter what has happened in your life, no matter the people in you life who have abandoned you or broken your heart this is not the case with our Mighty God... no, He is good and He can be trusted... we can rely on His love. So let us say,"His steadfast love endures forever."

Recipe:

I will be bringing this delicious Pumpkin Spice Bread to the family Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. It is so GOOD.

Children's Songs and Poems:

If You're Thankful
Tune: If You're Happy and You Know It

If you're thankful and you know it clap your hands.
If you're thankful and you know it clap your hands.
If you're thankful and you know it Then your face will surely show it.
If you're thankful and you know it clap your hands.

Additional Verses:
Stomp Your Feet
Shout "I am!"
Do All Three

I Am Thankful
Tune: Are You Sleeping?

I am thankful. I am thankful.
Yes I am! Yes I am!
I'm thankful for my family
And the friends who love me.
Yes I am! Yes I am!

Five Little Turkeys

5 little turkeys standing by door,
One waddled off, and then there were 4.
4 little turkeys under a treee,
One waddled off , and then there were 3.
3 little turkeys with nothing to do,
One waddled off, and then there were 2.
2 little turkeys in the noon day sun,
One waddled off, and then there was 1.
One little turkey better run away,
For soon will come Thanksgiving day.

If Turkeys Thought

If turkeys thought,
they'd run away,
A week before Thanksgiving Day.
But turkeys can't anticipate,
And so there's turkey on my plate!
