Hi Friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful time with friends and family as we gather to celebrate this uniquely American holiday. Scotty and I are in California enjoying time with my family. This is my favorite holiday of the year and I couldn’t be happier to be here! I have so much to be grateful for and I love that there is a tradition to set aside one day to consider the blessings each of us enjoy.
Let us give thanks to the Lord,
for he satisfies the thirsty,
he fills the hungry with good things,
and he heals the afflicted.
Let us celebrate his abundant goodness.
We thank you, gracious Father,
that you provide for all our needs,
for food on our tables,
for the clothes on our bodies,
for the beds we sleep in,
for the dwellings that shelter us.
We praise you, Lord,
for all your gifts that go beyond our basic needs,
for the things that make our work easier,
for the conveniences of modern life,
for the beauty and pleasure that you bring into our lives.
Thanks be to God!
