Bible Verse of the Week #29

2 Corinthians 9:15
"Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift."

I don't know about you, but I love thanksgiving and I'm really looking forward to tomorrow! I love this time of giving thanks. Today in chapel we had a guest speaker and he talked about how his grandpa always gave thanks. He wouldn't talk a lot about God, he wouldn't say much, but he would always remind his grandson to be thankful. 

I am thankful for a lot of things.

God provides me {and us} with so much! He has given me a house to live in, clothes {a LOT} to wear, parents, family and friends that love me, a computer to blog on, eyes to see, ears to hear, legs to walk... the list goes on! Sometimes I wonder why we don't thank Him enough.!? I mean honestly! He has given us so much, but we only celebrate that thanks once a year? That's crazy! We should thank Him with every chance we get! Those "gifts' He gives us are all around us! If you're reading this, you are looking at a gift. Your computer {or iPod or whatever device} is a gift! Say thank you to God right now! I dare you. :P Once you say thank you, why don't you read on with this little quote/prayer.


For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

I hope you all have a great day tomorrow and be looking forward to some excited posts!!!
With Love,
