I Am Grateful

In a couple of days, we will celebrate Thanksgiving. Before I get bogged down with cooking, eating, and enjoying my family, I want to reflect on what I am most thankful for this year.

There is a Gospel song by Hezekiah Walker that expresses exactly how I feel at this time. And it says...

I am grateful for the things that You have done
Yes, I'm grateful for the victories we've won
I could go on, and on, and on
About Your works
Because I'm grateful, so grateful
Just to praise you Lord

Flowing from my heart
Are the issues of my heart...
It's gratefulness

This year I am most thankful, and grateful for the lives of my dad, and brother. Dec. 30, they were both shot at point blank range, while being good Samaritans. A really bad day, turned into one of those, "Look at God," kind of year. And for that, I am truly grateful.

Oooooo, girl I was not expecting that. I will pray that you have peace in your heart this year as that time comes around. Thank you for participating and still being able to be thankful for something when there is tragedy. God Bless You.

We JUST sang "I Am Grateful" last week at our Gospel concert - I LOVE that song and I love the words and I love how it sounds when we sing it.

Tis so true!

I am grateful!

And I'm sorry to hear about your brother and your dad. I cannot express in words how tragic that must have been for you - but I am glad you've found God's grace and you know His love.

I wish for you a very special Thanksgiving this year.

In the midst of our trials, it's hard to always remember to give thanks. God commands us to give thanks always. Our lives are more joyful when we remember to do it.
