Giving Thanks

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.” I Chronicles 16:34

As a blessed people, it may be easy to take some things for granted. This week I am reminded of God’s mercy toward us. We have watched and some felt the very earth move under our feet. Despite an unprecedented earthquake felt along the eastern seaboard, no one was hurt and relatively small damage to property. We are so thankful for this blessing.

In a matter of hours the same area will face Hurricane Irene. Our prayers are for safety, mercy and protection for all that may be impacted. While this may be a time for petition before God, it is always a good time for thanks and gratitude. We are thankful for God’s creation of the Earth and all it provides for us. We are thankful to God that even during these challenging times the safest place for each of us is in your will. We are so thankful for His goodness and also for His faithful love toward us.  We do give thanks!
