Thank You, Lord


Psalm 95:1-2

Come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him.


A couple weeks before thanksgiving, I started writing down things that came to me, that I am thankful for.


Thank you, Father, that as I sit alone in my chair in the morning, I can hear noises in the house of the family you have given me waking up, those who still live in my house.


Thank You for technology. So that I can have contact with the family who do not live in my house; to remind me of the things I forget; Truly, I am thankful for technology. Truly.:)


Thank You for the friends I can depend on.


For a call from my daughter in Iowa.


For the handful of lovely days in November when I sat on my front porch and worked or read.


For coffee, which makes me smile.


For the lovely house you’ve gifted us with.


Cinnamon tea.


Your church, Lord.


Our crazy cat.


The uncountable worlds I can visit in books.


The gifts of the senses, especially smell and taste. You could have created a way for us to have nutrition without the enjoyment we get from food.


Monkey bread; comfortable jeans.


Favorite Christmas songs, Like “O Holy Night” and “Silent Night.”


Bible verses with promises of hope.


Hebrews 7:25:

Consequently he is able for all time to save those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. 


  1. Excellent post. It is a wonderful reminder that despite the craziness in the world we have a lot to be thankful for.

  2. We have so much to be thankful for, and it is so easy to take for granted the things we enjoy every single day, forgetting they are all gifts from God. Thank you for this reminder, Kathy!

  3. Thanks, Patti. I started this to remind myself to be thankful, and then came up with some fun stuff.:)

  4. Kathy, those are such lovely things to be thankful for. I had to chuckle at the coffee. I'm very grateful for coffee. Not as much as some other things, most of all salvation, but coffee is right up there for me.

    Thank you, Lord, for Kathy.

  5. Blessings without number!! And yet we offer complaints without number!!! UGH! I can relate to so many of the things you're thankful for, Kathy - coffee, the quiet before others awake, porch time before the frost takes over, for friends, and for God's unfailing love! :)
