Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I'm giving thanks for so many blessing from the LORD. He has saved my soul, given me a wonderful husband who loves me dearly, parents who raised me to know the Lord Jesus Christ from a small child, a brother & his family that also know and love the LORD, a precious new little neice (daughter of said brother), and so many others.

There's a wonderful hymn I love to sing this time of year; it's a reminder of what is truly important. Perhaps you know it, too? It's called "Count Your Blessings":

Count your blessings, Name them one by one
Count your blessings, See what God has done
Count your blessings, Name them one by one
Count your many blessings, See what God has done

When upon life's billows
You are tempest tossed
When you are discouraged
Thinking all is lost
Count your many blessings
Name them one by one
And it will surprise you
What the Lord has done

Are you ever burdened
With a load of care
Does the cross seem heavy
You are called to bear
Count your many blessings
Every doubt will fly
And you will be singing
As the days go by

When you look at others
With their lands and gold
Think that Christ has promised
You His wealth untold
Count your many blessings
Money cannot buy
Your reward in heaven
Nor your home on high

So, amid the conflict
Whether great or small
Do not be discouraged
God is over all
Count your many blessings
Angels will attend
Help and comfort give you
To your journey's end
