Thanksgiving: 30 Day Scripture Writing Plan - Day 1 & 2

Day 1: Psalm 95:1-7New Living Translation (NLT)

Psalm 95

Come, let us sing to the Lord!
    Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come to him with thanksgiving.
    Let us sing psalms of praise to him.
For the Lord is a great God,
    a great King above all gods.
He holds in his hands the depths of the earth
    and the mightiest mountains.
The sea belongs to him, for he made it.
    His hands formed the dry land, too.
Come, let us worship and bow down.
    Let us kneel before the Lord our maker,
    for he is our God.
We are the people he watches over,
    the flock under his care.

Day 2: 1 Corinthians 1:4-9 New Living Translation (NLT)

Paul Gives Thanks to God

I always thank my God for you and for the gracious gifts he has given you, now that you belong to Christ Jesus. Through him, God has enriched your church in every way—with all of your eloquent words and all of your knowledge. This confirms that what I told you about Christ is true. Now you have every spiritual gift you need as you eagerly wait for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

During this month of November, I am wanting to reflect and give thanks to God.  It is easy to get wound up into material things along with wants when so much of it is not even needed.  However, when you sit back, enjoy the moments, you realize how much you have around you.  

Yesterday, we looked into a different neighborhood and looked at some new homes that were ready to move into.  Jeff and I really liked one of them, but at the end of the day we discussed it was really out of price range.  Along with our conversations, I was not content on the location of the house based on the current phase and likelihood of it being a busier street than our current home.  When we moved out to our area after getting my teaching position, it seemed we "lucked" into our home.  We live currently on a quiet section of the neighborhood on a cul-de-sac.  The main traffic is from home owners in our area.  In conversations with my grandmother, she reminds me, "Well, you live in your house and not your backyard."  I have been thinking of our conversations recently because I know she is absolutely correct.  I also know if the time is right in the future, everything will "fall" into place if we are destined to move.
