So often we get caught up in asking God for things that we forget to thank him for the things he has already given us. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we wanted to take some time to reflect and remember what we’re thankful for. This isn’t a new idea, but I think it’s important to have a time of thanksgiving. We’d love it if you would add your own reflections in the comments section below this post. Happy Thanksgiving!

let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! (Psalm 95:2)
