"Sometimes while I'm talking to God, He'll show me something about myself in such a way that I have to laugh at my own humanity and how funny I must look to Him." - Donna

Thanks!




I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.
Psalm 69:30

On this blessed day when we stop to thank God for all He's done for us, I want to say thank you. I'm so grateful Jesus is my Lord and Savior. I'm grateful for my family and for all the bountiful blessings the Lord has given to me. The Lord is better to me than anyone else. Oh, wait a minute. So you think that, too, huh?

I posted the first devotional on this website in the latter part of May 2004. I'm thankful the Lord has continued to inspire and gracious to give me words to write. My greatest desire is to praise God and draw closer to Him daily through prayer and studying His Word.

I'd also like to thank YOU. You've been supportive and encouraging. It's a blessing to know the words the Lord inspires have touched your heart or caused you to meditate on God and His mighty ways.

I pray the Lord allows me to continue writing and uses my limited ability to bring honor to our infinite God.

May you have a blessed thanksgiving with your family and friends.

No, thank YOU! You have quite a bit to say & when I read your devotions, it gets my creativeness started. Then I can put my feelings down on paper (or online) also. I have trouble finding anyone to understand certain things & you seem to know exactly where I'm coming from! Keep up the good work because you make me THINK! Continue being a blessing so God can bless you right back! Don't eat too much turkey :o)

Donna,

Beautiful words on "thanks" and "Thanksgiving." It is writers like you who remind us about what is important on this day of thanksgiving....

I did have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Tons of food, loads of laughs, and a slew of thanks. My sister-in-law is a generous and thoughtful hostess, and it was so nice to see family I only see a few times a year.

Thanks for stopping by to comment.
