Wednesday Word

Thanksgiving:  Poems have been read, Songs have been sung and Books have been written.  Instead, I go back to an elementary classroom at Goldsboro Christian School where words of Scripture memorized formed a foundational Thanksgiving nearly 50 years ago.


Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath 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 unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.


The decades that have passed since this passage was first committed to memory have definitely been a testimony of a good God deserving of gratitude and gladness.  Thanksgivings have come and gone and certainly none looks more different than this one.  Amazingly, we have a Creator who invites us to spend the day, each day – in His presence.  I don’t know about you, but I could sure use some everlasting mercy and an enduring truth about now.


Good words for Grade School.  Great reminders for The School Of Life.


Happy Thanksgiving!
