Happy Thanksgiving

I love this picture—“Girls Laughing, Uganda”—the photo of the day from National Geographic.  It seems like an illustration of the Thanksgiving psalm I’ve included below: “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.”  Surely if these girls from Uganda can find something to laugh about, we can, too.

My prayer for you this day is that it would be a day filled with “gladness” and “joyful songs,” with much to be grateful for, and if you need some words to get you started, here they are:

Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving thanks.

 1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.

 2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
       come before him with joyful songs.

 3 Know that the LORD is God.
       It is he who made us, and we are his;
       we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
       and his courts with praise;
       give thanks to him and praise his name.

 5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
       his faithfulness continues through all generations.
