Give Thanks

celebrate Jesus


Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever.

~Psalms 107:1, NIV


Thankfulness is a soil in which pride does not easily grow.

~Michael Ramsay

my thoughts red

When you lay down your personal interest to help someone it is always nice to hear a “thank you.” Do you suppose our Heavenly Father delights in hearing us give Him thanks for all the wonderful things He does in our behalf. Counting blessings should not be that hard for most of us if we will just sit down and think. God is good and I personally am overwhelmed at his kindness and mercy toward me. It might not be a bad idea to give HIM thanks right now. When you count your blessings, what is the first thing that comes to mind?


  • Another great day for me: I don’t know how others feel but I enjoyed yesterday.
  • Congratulations to Alfred and Wanda Farris on their 50th wedding anniversary.  Alfred is an avid DIGEST reader but I don’t know for sure that he reads the blog.
  • We want to welcome Aubrey Sterling to our Blog family. He and Wes were with us in a.m. worship yesterday and he ask me how to find the blog. He and Wes were very complimentary of the service. I think they like the band. Speaking of the band, June and I were really blessed by Brent’s guitar solo’s. I love our band and all the guys are good and faithful. It was also good to see Sloan back on the stage.
  • It was good to have Eddie and Sue in the services yesterday but Eddie has to go to Ohio this week: the man never stops moving.
  • Also good to see Allen Blackwood, Ken’s son. He is working this summer in Auburn. He is a student at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. Virginia has enough D-1 Universities to have their own league. They have George Mason University, Hampton University, James Madison University, Liberty University, Longwood University, Norfolk State University, Old Dominion University, Radford University, University of Richmond, University of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University Virginia Military Institute, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University,  and College of William and Mary.
  • This is our WEEK OF PRAYER for the Block Party. Pray for God’s will to be done!
