Daily D – Psalm 9:1
“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” (NIV)
“I’m thanking you, God, from a full heart, I’m writing the book on your wonders. I’m whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I’m singing your song, High God.” (MSG)
You probably have a mother or other relative who once upon a time said, “Before we eat, let’s each say something we are thankful for.” It is not time to have this linear declaration when the rolls are hot, and the turkey is warm and the potatoes, both sweet and starchy, invite you to cram forkfuls into your face. Maybe later over apple pie and before the Cowboys play.
Thanksgiving is less of a holiday and more of a lifestyle. We celebrate it with special fare and circumstances each year to remind us of how good God is to provide us with our daily bread. We reflect on the abundance of his mercy and kindness, love and grace discovered in relationships most dear and enduring.
May today be filled to overflowing with gratitude and goodness.
May your table overflow and your plate be full.
May your nap be sweet and the Cowboys win.
May your memory gain another treasure to reflect on with pleasure as the years go on and turn into forever.
I will give God thanks.
Our Father, you are the Giver of All Good Things. We receive your gift of daily bread with gratitude. We receive your gift of loving relationships and enduring joy with endless thanksgiving. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
