We have so much we can look towards God for and say a huge thanks! Here is the thing, it is not something we should express once a year but it should be a daily response of gratitude towards the One who has give us life, salvation, hope mercy, forgiveness, amazing grace, and love.  The One who has shown His faithfulness, His great wonders, His power, and His promises.

As I sit here blogging from my father in laws house in Naples, New York.  I am not only grateful for WHO God is and WHAT only He can do, but I am grateful for every blessing He has given me.  My heart is overflowing with gratitude, for my amazing wife, my wonderful son, my great family, my many incredible friend, my awesome community of faith, what I get the privilege to do as a calling and full time job.  Our God is truly great—-I must have a ongoing attitude of Thankfulness!

What are you thankful to the Lord for?  Are you filled with gratitude for all that the Lord is and all that He has done?  Are you grateful for every blessings He has lavishly poured out?

SIMPLY:
Give thanks to the God of heaven,
His love endures forever

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
