A Day of Thanksgiving

A Psalm of praise.

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
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)

We I have much to be thankful for (I will not presume to speak for everyone).  Good health, a beautiful loving wife, a wonderful family who nearly all claim Christ as Lord and Savior (and live like they mean it), and a business that never seems to lack for work.  Add to that a good doctrinally solid church with a equally good doctrinally solid pastor.  Add to that a great place to live in the country.  Add to that food and clothing enough that I never go hungry or cold.  Add to that a dog who is the best dog ever (and possibly the smartest).  And that is only the tip of the iceberg!

Indeed Jehovah, he is God, and I am very thankful to be one of the sheep of his pasture for he is good. And I am so thankful that his mercy is everlasting, because I, more than most, am a debtor to that mercy!
