A Heart of Thanks



Counting the ways that You love us ~
     at Thanksgiving time, and all through the year ...

  • sending us Immanuel - "God with us"
  • peace amidst the storms
  • undeserving grace & mercy You give
  • Your faithfulness and Your unending love - each day
  • being our strong refuge

  • this beautiful life You have given us
  • the difficulties that this life brings, drawing us to You
  • Your Presence always with us - in the good, and in the hard
  • Your glorious, unlimited resources
  • promises given and promises kept - Your Word

  • caring for our sweet granddaughter Crystal
  • providing the perfect donor for her kidney transplant
  • seven months later - continued amazing recovery for Crystal and Amy
  • how can we thank You enough, Lord?

  • Your care as we helped my 94 year-old father in difficult times
  • for how my brothers/sisters-in-law rescued us in our time of need
  • a season of rest for us after eight months of great trial
  • some unexpected months of improvement for my father

  • blessings of our family - too many to contain, overflowing
  • four sweet daughters, two amazing sons, four great sons-in-law
  • ten of the dearest grandkids - five girls, five boys
  • excited anticipation of all home for Thanksgiving
  • the best and greatest life with my sweet hubby - how I love him

  • this beautiful life You have given us
  • the difficulties that this life brings, drawing us to You
  • how You use both for Your great purposes 
  • Your greatest gift to us: JESUS - "God with us"
  • May You receive all our praise, and may Your Name be lifted high.


Let us praise You at all times
and exalt Your Name together
on Thanksgiving Day
and on every day of our lives.
