A Thanksgiving Prayer

As our children grow older and develop other family relationships, it’s getting harder and harder to get everyone together. This year will be vastly different from last year. Everyone is headed to spend the holiday with the other parts of their families. For us, that means a quiet Thanksgiving. It will feel odd, but I hope we can find some new traditions to create with the grandchildren this year.

Last year, I shared a friend’s blog post about a Thanksgiving prayer. I think it works well for this year, too. So, as you gather with family and friends, whether it’s a time of joy or stress, maybe this little prayer will set the tone.

Thanksgiving is upon us. Where did November go?

For that matter, where did this year go? It’s spun by at a breakneck speed in our house.

As you know, there’s a lot of turmoil in our family now, yet we’re looking forward to a lively and family-oriented holiday. Not everyone will be there. It’s part of the life we, and our grandchildren, face each and every day. Maybe that’s why the post I read on the Answers in Love blog spoke to me. The writer is a wonderful sister in Christ, and the moment I read her post, I knew it was what I wanted to share with you.

So, as you prepare to gather with family and friends, whether it’s a time of joy or stress, maybe this little prayer will set the tone.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Joyful Praise

Today is a beautiful day.

I feel wonderful, too. It took me awhile to figure out why I felt so good. This is one of those rare days when my fibromyalgia is very quiet. They are few and far between.

It takes a pain-free day for me to realize the level of pain I’ve become accustomed to. The absence of that pain makes me feel buoyant and happy.

It’s a day worth rejoicing!

So, here are some scriptures to lift you up.

Psalms 5:11-12 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. For you bless the righteous, O LORD; you cover him with favor as with a shield.

Psalms 96:11-13 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it!

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

And my personal favorite:
Psalms 118:24  Today is the day the Lord has made; rejoice and be glad in it.
