Giving Thanks

I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30

Thanksgiving flower 4-1



David wrote, “thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.” (Psalm 32:7) I am thankful the Lord has given me songs through the years to remember my journeys. Usually, I am going ‘through” or just beginning to ‘come out’ of a situation when I begin to hear the lyrics.

I wrote the following song in 2004. Yet this past week, it has played over and over in my head. When I awake, while doing chores, or preparing for bed, it has reminded me tomorrow is not promised. So I must do what needs doing, today.

I must:

  • forgive
  • love
  • pray
  • praise


Worthy of the Highest Praise

Tomorrow is never promised, so it must be today

When we come together in one accord offering our praise.

With songs of thanksgiving, with hands and hearts upraised,

Giving all to Him and to Him alone, Let us lift His wondrous name.


He is worthy of the highest praise.

He is holy.

And forever He will reign.

Let the earth rejoice.

Jesus Christ is Lord.

He is worthy of the highest praise.

During this holiday season remember the important things. When the family arrives, peer deeply into their eyes. Listen intently. Hug gently and lovingly. Laugh with all your might. Make a memory. And finally, give the Lord praise for all the blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving!
