Give Thanks with a grateful heart


Friday Five: Giving Thanks

Songbird said "It's that time of year.

In the U.S., college students will be on their way home, traffic on the highways will be at its highest point, cooking and baking will ensue.

But before the gorging and napping begins, let's take a moment to give thanks.

Please tell us five things or people for which you are thankful this year. "
I am so grateful for my husband Bob, my daughters Katy and Kara, and my son Zach. And I include in the rest of those I am grateful for is my family and friends. And I am especially grateful for my revgalblogpals. And I am grateful for my parishioners. Now my Katy would say,"And mommy are your thankful for yourself, and I would say yes." Finally I am grateful for God.

Bonus: Praise Songs or Hymns that express thanksgiving that I like;
"Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart"
"He has Made Me Glad"
"Now Thank We All Our God"
"God, Your Blessings Overflow" (a new hymn by
Carolyn Winfrey Gillette)
"God of the Sparrow, God of the Whale"
(Scroll Down to see the words)
Musical Thanksgiving (A list of Methodist hymns on Thanksgiving)
Cyberhymnal's list for Thanksgiving and Harvest

Dearest Rev Abi,
I give thanks to God everytime I think of you. I honestly believe that it was a "God Thing" that we met at the Festival of Homies -- it was Providence and Grace. You have been an inspiration to me -- and a friend and I give God the thanks and ask God to shower blessing upon you, your family and your ministry.
Peace and hugs,
Theresa
