Thankful Thursday


One of the songs our kids learned in VBS this year was "Thankful". I love this song... it is upbeat and fun to sing. Most of all, though, I love the message. It speaks of remembering all that the Lord has done for us. We all are blessed! We have so much for which to be thankful.

This weekend as we enjoyed the long holiday weekend and a visit with my parents, my son went around the house singing this song. I can't tell you what a joy it was to hear him singing this song of praise, smiling as he sang. More than once I would sing along with him.. what special moments!

As I think on this song today, I am so very thankful for ALL the Lord has done for me and my family. I am thankful, too, that I live in a land where we are free to worship and can so easily teach our children of Him and involve them in church from a young age.

Happy Thankful Thursday to all!

I like to think about the goodness of the Lord
He gives me everything I need and so much more
So I just wanna lift my hands and say that I love Him
I just wanna lift my heart in praise

I wanna be thankful
I wanna be grateful
I wanna remember everything that the Lord has done!

I wanna be thankful
I wanna be grateful
I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be!
