Thanksgiving Day

November 23, 2017 | 42 comments

It is a National Holiday of Thanksgiving in the USA today, a special time to remember our blessings and express gratitude for them.
Thanks be to God, the giver of all good!
Among my long list of reasons to be grateful, I include you, a reader of this blog!
Thank you for your support, your comments, thoughts and prayers throughout the year. They bless me, and I in turn, pray to return those blessings to others.
Wishing you a gratitude-filled day.

“Always be thankful.”
~ Colossians 3:15, NLT

Psalm 100:3-5 (NLT)
3 Acknowledge that the LORD is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.

    Thankfulness is thoughtfulness,
    and joy and hope and praise,
    acknowledgment that God is good,
    and gladness for His ways.

    Thankfulness is thoughtfulness,
    inspiration, faith, delight,
    the sunshine of eternal day
    dispelling doubt and night.

  21. I am simply in awe at the beauty, power, and loveliness that continues to pour forth from this SV community. Thank you Father-Mother God for expressing your greatness through Evan and all of us. Gratitude abounds!

  22. My giving thanks/ gratitude to Evan and the loving writers who contribute to Spiritview. Evan’s precious writings on this page have been sent to my grandson and have brought God and C.S. into his life. He especially loves the ones where Evan begins with…………….God is……………..God can…………..God will…………
    (A whole page sometimes of what God can do for each one of us.) These articles have helped open up a spiritual view of God’s care to my adult grandson. I am so grateful for this open door for him. It is comforting to have him tell me,( his grandmother), to “turn to God and ask him what you should do!!” Thank y ou dear Evan and all the wonderful contributors. Onward!!!!
