Blue skies, comfortable temp, goats that bleat, hens that cluck and lay, two little furry faces that look up at you with pure affection, untarnished forestry, and hours of easy conversation with bone of your bone and flesh of your flesh; it is for these things I offer thanks today.
Creation and the company of people we love are true gifts from The Father of Heaven who loves us.
Give thanks today, Friends.
We have innumerable reasons to praise and offer thanks to our Creator.
Psalm 118 NKJV 24 This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. source
And this verse as I took it out of context we often do. Even out of context it is encouraging and we quote it to help us on days, not like today. Do you know what I mean?
But let us look at it in context.
21 I will praise You, For You have answered me, And have become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.
23 This was the Lord’s doing; It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. source
He answered our cry for deliverance. He became our salvation.
How did He do that?
The stone the builders rejected became the chief cornerstone.
And Who is this Chief Cornerstone?
None other than Our Blessed LORD YESHUA – JESUS CHRIST the Righteous. ( See 1 Peter 2)
Yes, indeed this IS the LORD’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes!
That HE would save wretches like us!
The DAY the Cornerstone became sin for us and died on the Execution Stake and AROSE from DEATH on the 3rd day.
OH YES! WE rejoice in that day that ONLY The LORD could make!
We rejoice for that DAY every day. Amen and amen!
Now go about this day giving thanks for THE DAY!
