kids here tears up over this one — and then laughed happy.
For gifts you can’t wait to give — like more of Jesus!
so, the deal is, God? We aren’t about to let anything steal our thanksgiving.
We aren’t letting hard times steal our thanksgiving,
We aren’t letting hard sells steal our thanksgiving,
We aren’t letting hard knocks steal our thanksgiving.
Because all of us folks down in the trenches know it:
If you let something steal your thanksgiving?
You let something steal your joy,
And if you let something steal your joy?
You let something steal your *strength.*
So, in the midst of our Big Things, our Ugly Things, our Hard Things, in the midst of All Things,
We give thanks to You, God — not because of how we feel
but simply because of Who. You. Are.
We’re on it, O Beautiful Lord & Giver of All —
The one thing we must pray to be great at is thanksgiving —
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.
Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
Share Whatever Is Good.
