“Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!”‭‭Psalm‬ ‭100:4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Dear God,

On this Thanksgiving Day, I am thankful for all of it. Everything. Good times. Hard times. Health. Pain. Children. You promised eternal life and all that it entails. You are a promise keeper. The Promise Keeper. You gave me peace in a world of turmoil. 

When the world is shaking, heaven stands. When my heart is breaking, I never leave your hand.

 ~ JJ Heller

Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!

Love, me

Colossians 3:15-17
15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Happy day after Thanksgiving!

I give thanks I was able to go to work and serve my OR by answering the phone, adding cases for today, picking cases for today, and being available in the event of an emergency.

I give thanks that no emergencies arrived between 3pm and 11pm. I give thanks that people were able to be happy and healthy and with their families for at least that brief period of time in my little corner of the world.

I give thanks that I was able to be light and joyful and cheer up my co-worker who accidentally signed up to work on Thanksgiving when she thought she only signed up to be on call.

I give thanks I had a co-worker to keep me company for those 8 hours.

I give thanks for another co-worker who joined us for the free meal the hospital provided, turkey with all the trimmings! I give thanks he joined us because it turns out he has no family or friends and would have been completely alone, but instead he shared in the meal with us!

I give thanks for Jesus! For His life. For His love. For His sacrifice!

I give thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Psalm 95:2
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

My dear sweet Abba Father, there are not enough words in human language to tell you how thankful I am today! For as the darkest of darkness that lived in my heart for 2 months was, is how bright the light of revival is in my heart today! Praise you God! Praise you from whom all blessings flow! I am yours and you are mine! I will sing praise to your name forever! I will go wherever you lead! I will follow you into the world! I will serve you today with thanksgiving at my job to care for the sick, to cheer them, to encourage them they are not alone in their suffering. I will do my best to serve and love on my co-workers, to lighten their spirits when they would rather be with family because they don’t know your joy. Let my words and actions today bring you glory! Now and forever! Jesus! No turning back! I love you! Love me.

His… Michelle
