In the month of November and throughout the year, there’s a song my church choir sometimes sing, “Every Day is a Day of Thanksgiving.”
The lyrics go on to say:
“God’s been so good to me,
Every day He's a blessing,
Every day is a day of Thanksgiving,
Take the time to glorify the Lord, today.”
Therefore, today, I am no less thankful than I was on yesterday, the National Day of Thanksgiving. Of course, I am thankful to God for the life He breathes into me and for His Son, Jesus who died on the cross to save us all from our sins. I am grateful for my family and friends for their unconditional love. Overall, I am appreciative to my reading fans, my supporters, and my fellow authors who thought it not selfish to encourage me in my continued literary mission to do God’s calling. Indeed, you are all a blessing from God!
Mama, I Want to See God
“Mama, can I eat with God? Will He like our baked bread?” “God invites us to His table. Thank Him and bow your head.”
