I hope that you all had a joyous and restful Thanksgiving day. Looking back on this year, I have so many reasons to give thanks. What I am most thankful for this year and every year is the love of God. I found myself singing this song in the shower tonight as I reflected on a wonderful day of fellowship with my precious grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, parents, husband and friends. It was complete with delicious food, great conversations and perfect weather for playing hide and seek/tag/whatever else my youngest cousin decided we would play. Thank you God for your legacy of love that permeates my family and passes to each new generation. I am blessed beyond measure. Let us not remember only our earthly blessings during this holiday season but also the love of our Heavenly Father.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
No mind has ever conceived
The glorious things that You have prepared
For everyone who has believed
You brought us near and You called us Your own
And made us joint heirs with Your Son.
How high and how wide,
How deep and how long,
How sweet and how strong is Your love.
How lavish Your grace,
How faithful Your ways,
How great is Your love, oh Lord.
Objects of mercy who should have known wrath
We’re filled with unspeakable joy.
Riches of wisdom, unsearchable wealth,
And the wonder of knowing Your voice.
You are our treasure and our great reward,
Our hope and our glorious King.
Great, great song. I have it on iTunes, but I can’t figure out how to insert it into this post. If anyone knows, please advise. I’m sorry. I’m still learning. Anyway, I like the Hillsong version of this best. The first stanza of the second verse pops into my head often. We are objects of mercy who should have known wrath. Praise God for that.
Happy Thanksgiving weekend to you and yours!
