In Everything Give Thanks

Thanksgiving Day is fast approaching. Many people are busy cooking, cleaning, and preparing for a big family feed. Others are wondering who they’ll spend the day with, or they’re missing lost loved ones. Some are dreading the pending presence of a certain relative or acquaintance.

Whether you spend the week in busy anticipation or not, take a moment today and write a list of all the things for which you are thankful. I encourage you to actually get a piece of paper and a pencil or pen and write a list.

At the top of the paper make three column headings:

People             Things             Answered Prayer

Aim for at least five entries in each column, and then share one with us here in the comments below.

Have a blessed week and may all that you do be full of thanksgiving.


I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. Psalm 9:1 

In everything give thanks. Share on X

  1. My family, that’s 5 right there.
    My woodstove, my bed, my roof, my tea kettle, my bed,
    Healthy kids, work trudging along, NOT having a heart condition (long story), interest in my work, that God has ALWAYS provided for my needs.

    I love your tag line
    “Loving the cowboy” !!!
    I know you’ve done this through thick and thin
    and will continue to do it “til the cows come home!”
    Bless you and your family.
