Happy Thanksgiving!

We've been doing a lot of studying of the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving the past couple of days and discussing our gratitude.  We have been given so much, so much more than we deserve!  The words to this hymn by Keith & Kristyn Getty & Stuart Townend pretty much sum up my thoughts about Thanksgiving.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who bore my pain;
Who plumbed the depths of my disgrace
And gave me life again;
Who crushed my curse of sinfulness
And clothed me in His light
And wrote His law of righteousness
With pow'r upon my heart.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who walks beside;
Who floods my weaknesses with strength
And causes fears to fly;
Whose ev'ry promise is enough
For ev'ry step I take,
Sustaining me with arms of love
And crowning me with grace.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To him who reigns above,
Whose wisdom is my perfect peace,
Whose ev'ry thought is love.
For ev'ry day I have on earth
Is given by the King;
So I will give my life, my all,
To love and follow him.
