his love endures forever

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalm 118:1 NIV

In the United States we set aside one day a year and designate it as Thanksgiving, a time to remember the blessings of the past year. But as a believer in the the triune God, I am called to express thanksgiving to him every day. I have so much to be thankful for. I am thankful . . .

  • that God loves me and has called me to himself
  • for the hope I have in Christ
  • that he has called me into his service and gifted me for that task
  • for my wife, children and grandchildren
  • that I have a comfortable home
  • for a church where I am able to worship and serve
  • for a few close friends I can share my heart with
  • and for even more friends who brighten my day
  • for good health
  • for all the years of life he has given me
  • and for the trail and the ability to enjoy the creation

I am blessed beyond measure. Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. Praise him for all he has done for us.

Just an old clay jar that God continues to see fit to use in his kingdom's work. I am retired, married with 2 children, and 4 grandchildren. I have followed Jesus for many years. And I love to share what He has given me from His word.
