31 Days Of Thanks

January 1, 2014

Read: Psalm 136:1-16,26

Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! —Psalm 136:3
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 1-3; Matthew 1

January, according to many US calendars, is National Thank You Month. This, of course, is easily transferable everywhere, so perhaps it should be Global Thank You Month.

In order to make the best use of this celebration of gratitude, let’s begin by seeing what Scripture says about thankfulness.

One place to start is Psalm 136, which begins and ends with the words, “Oh, give thanks” (vv.1,26). Again and again in this chapter we are reminded of a single, overriding reason to bestow our gratitude on our great God: “His mercy endures forever.” We could spend the whole month learning about gratitude from Psalm 136.

The psalmist reminds us of God’s “great wonders” (v.4). He tells us of God’s creative work brought on by His wisdom (v.5). He moves on to rehearse the great exodus of His people (vv.10-22). As we think through these pictures of creation and deliverance found in Psalm 136, we can easily find something to thank God for every day of this Thank You Month.

What better way to start off a new year than to concentrate on conveying gratitude to our Lord! “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever” (v.1).

How good it is to thank the Lord,
And praise to Thee, Most High, accord,
To show Thy love with morning light,
And tell Thy faithfulness each night! —Psalter
When you think of all that’s good, give thanks to God.

Happy New Year!





That picture from Hubble is part of my background screen. I modified it with a fairy reading from a book to the face of a crescent moon. That's from a painting by David Delamare.

I composited the image and put it as background. It's a great leaping-off point for imagination!

Speaking of which:

.

One Day

One day, we'll all be happy,
One day, we'll be content,
One day, we'll be aware of,
Exactly what God meant.

He told us we should love ourselves,
Just as we love our brother,
A purpose for life's bounty,
To share with one another.

One day we may accept that,
Begin to understand,
One day to spread the love of God,
In peace throughout the land.

One day to find contentment,
A day to feel so blessed,
We'll choose to be His servant,
And also be His guest.

I am the eldest of six!

My youngest sis lives upstairs from Mom, so she and her hubby usually do most of the aforementioned stuff.

My visit gave them a little break, so they could devote their time to their Twin Infant grandsons!

It is one of my Favorite Hubble Pics!

I get a new one every day from the Astronomy Picture Of the Day, a Daily FR thread that is maintained by FReeper “Sunken Civ”.

You might want to get on the APOD Ping list.

I would LOVE to see your adaptation of the picture.

~Beautiful, Bob~
Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift with us.
Your Scarlet Dreams Sunday was so appreciated and perfect with the
opening.
I have no white snowy branches but 6 Cardinals were hanging out in my
red berried youpon tree Sunday.
What a treat they are.

"I would LOVE to see your adaptation of the picture."

I may have lost the original work. All I have left is a smaller portion.

This is a link to the fairy reading, by David Delamare.

I also think I rotated the Hubble image so that the fairy could sit on the left of the opening, and read to the moon-face on the right side.

I would have to re-create it again to get the proper resolution.

"That is Cool!"

Yes, it is. I love being me, and the richness of blessings that fall on me like snowflakes.

(You may temper that with the knowledge that I have to tramp through the mud like the rest of you, if you wish. But it's all about attitude, I say.)
