Give Thanks to the Lord!
by Mark Perkins, elder on November 26th, 2011

So I have to admit that I do enjoy a good Thanksgiving meal and time with my family and friends! There is nothing like a good smoked turkey, honey-glazed ham, mashed potatoes (butter and sour cream mixed right in), green bean casserole and my favorite warm apple pie for desert. The sights, aromas and fellowship are simply wonderful!

While sitting together at dinner, our family tradition has been to go around the table and have each person share what they are thankful for over this past year. Blessings mentioned included continued good health, the opportunity to go to college, employment during a tough economy and the milestone of a 25th marriage anniversary. Though we also had our share of trials this year, I was once again reminded of how our Lord has poured out His blessings in so many ways. My heart was full of gratefulness and I so wanted to give the Lord all of the credit for His loving kindness and His work in our lives. I am reminded of a verse in I Chronicles 16:34 which says, “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Our God is so good and His love for us endures far beyond what we can imagine! Therefore, I will give thanks to Him for all He has done.

May you and your family enjoy the bounty of God’s many blessings with grateful hearts as we observe this time of Thanksgiving.
