All Things

Dear Receivers,

“Thank God. Worship God.”  Psalm 100:4   The psalmist is clear that God has given us all things.  “God made us, we did not make God.” Palms 100:3.

                   “Be thankful for the smallest blessing,

                       And you will deserve to receive greater.

                    Value the least gifts to the greatest,

                         and simple graces and special favors.

                       If you remember the dignity of the Giver,

                     No gift will seem small or mean,

                For nothing can be valueless that is given by the most high God.”

                                   --Thomas a Kempis

 “Beggar that I am , I am even poor in thanks.”

                                   --William Shakespeare, ‘Hamlet’

As Thanksgiving guest lists and menus get fine-tuned, let us ponder anew who has given and who has received. Thanks be to God.

Prayers: For thankfulness, healing, the hungry, and for those who mourn.

Still in one peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
