I thank You for these gifts, dear God,
Upon Thanksgiving Day—
For love and laughter and the faith
That bids me kneel to pray.
For life that lends me happiness,
And sleep that gives me rest;
These are the gifts that keep my heart
Serene within my breast.
Love, laughter, faith and life and sleep,
We cherish every one—
They carry us along the road
That leads from sun to sun.
Margaret E. Sangster
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
The New International Version
When we eat the good bread, we are eating months of sunlight, weeks of rain and snow from the sky, richness out of the earth. We should be great, each of us radiant, full of music and full of stories. Able to run the way clouds do, able to dance like the snow and the rain. But nobody takes time to think that he eats all these things and that sun, rain, snow are all a part of himself.
This particular week, we are so very thankful for you, our ministry members. We thank you for your prayers and support for so many years. Presently, during these months of November and December, we share once again our year-end fundraising efforts, where we invite our readers to participate in supporting these ministries financially. In preparation of our next year, we would so value and appreciate your prayers and your donations, as we seek to strengthen and expand our ministries as we go forward together. Thank you!
