Thanksgiving is a Prayer and a Way of Life more than it is just a Day. Psalm 100 tells us to “Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!  Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He Who made us and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture.  Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.  Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His Truth endures all generations”.  So we should live in a joyful state praising Him.  Be happy you get to serve Him.  Keep a song in your spirit as you stay in His presence because He made you.  You are His creation and His property.  You are not your own.  So when you get to the gates of His property – enter in a way of life that is a never ending expression of Thanksgiving to Him for all this and for all things that are a concern to you. But don’t stop at the gates, enter into the courts of His presence with a way of life that says to Him – I won’t stop praising You for all that You are no matter where I am or where I go cause You are great and great will be my praise for You.  Have a great day giving thanks to a great God and Creator.  Love you.
