Thank You

“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.” 
Psalm 100

Sing praise as we come to the week of the birth of our Lord. Sing praise and offer thanks with hearts and hands raised. A dear friend gives without asking or seeking thanks—in fact, the praise received can be unnerving. Yet, I am compelled to offer thanks. The gratitude changes me; calls me to recognize the goodness and gift of another. So too our gratitude to our Lord changes us; shifts our vision to that of the goodness and grace constantly given. 

Prayer: As the holiest of nights draws near, let us reflect on the gratitude in our hearts and sing out. 

Ever-giving God, we thank you, with all our hearts we sing praise. Amen
