Psalm 100:1-5 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. 2. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. 3. 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. 4. Enter into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 5. For the Lord is good: his mercy is everlasting: and his truth endureth to all generations.
the bounty of the Lord, My how he has blessed us. The world and the economy is failing but God cares and watches over His own, those who have entrusted their soul to Him. The Bible says that because of “Him we exist and function every day.” We truly have been blessed beyond what we deserve.
the blessings of love, What does I love you truly mean. I see the term love meaning that one is truly unique and special in the eyes of others. God sees that in each one of His children a uniqueness that is different from all others. My mom and dad had seven children and to my mother each one was unique and she always remembered what each one preferred on their birthday. That is something special. My God sees me as unique and special. I AM LOVED!!!!
the beauty of the Holiness of God. This day of Thanksgiving, I get to praise God for His Holiness within which is great beauty. There is nothing or no one that is Holy except for God and His vision of us as He sees us through the blood of His dear Son, Jesus Christ. What joy, and deep felt appreciation we should have for this greatest of beauties, the Holiness of God and His acceptance of us.
PSALM 26:6 – I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O Lord: PSALM 26:7 – That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
Hebrews 13:14,15 –For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.  By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
The habitation of God, whether it was in the Tabernacle, the Temple, or individual local Churches, wherever it was or is, it was always meant to be a gathering place to seek truth while growing in faith, hope, and love. It was, and is, to be a place where children of God learn to behave themselves after they have been saved by the grace of God. The habitation of his Spirit in his house is where his honor dwells by the presence of his Son.
