VERSES FOR THANKSGIVING

George W. Bush’s proclamations came just two months after the September 11 tragedy. He stated that In thankfulness and humility, we acknowledge, especially now, our dependence on One
greater than ourselves.
All of the early Thanksgiving celebrations had one thing in common. The thanksgiving was directed toward God. It did not matter that many had very hard
times. The people knew that God was their creator and provider and that all good things ultimately came from Him. It is in this spirit that we bring you
the following passages from God’s Word:

Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.
–1 Chronicles 16:8; Psalm 105:1

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
–1 Thessalonians 5:18

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
