Give Thanks - Anchored In Him

To the men and women who will be in Iraq
this Thanksgiving Day.
The people of America, remember you in every way
I know you have little ones, back here at home
I see you in the desert, sleeping in sand, all alone

It must be difficult to learn a language not your own
To keep the peace in Iraq, is hard, when those you love are in a land so far away
I feel your sadness on this Thanksgiving Day.

You are young men and woman
Teaching freedom is the way America was made
How do you show people, who are so afraid?
When you walk with boots, that fill with sand
But the Lord is still there with you in a Muslim land.

I will set a place at the table, this Thanksgiving Day
hoping you will come back soon
maybe on Christmas Day.

As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget that the
highest appreciation is not to
utter words, but to live by them.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

A special thanks to the members and families of our Armed Forces you are in our prayers daily. May God watch over and comfort you.

Father, as we come to you in prayer we ask you as a sinful nation to forgive us where we have failed you in so many ways. We ask that that You continue to keep Your hand of protection and blessing upon us. As there is a new leadership coming into power in our nation we ask for their salvation. Father may everything that the leaders of
our great nation do on humble bended knees before You. Father we ask that You comfort the families that have lost loved ones through out the past year provide them with only the comfort that You can give.
Heavenly Father we thank you for all of the blessings that You have given to us although we are unworthy of them.  Father watch over our missionaries not only during this special time of the year, but though out the year.
We ask Father that we be ever mindful that we are nothing without Your grace and mercies.
Lord we thank you for the bountiful blessings that only You have and bestow upon us. There is not one of us alive today that can not think of or thank you for the blessings. Forgive us when we whine as to what we ask for and in prayer that we do not receive. Often when we pray; we pray for things that You know we want or do not need and You do not answer the prayer. To many times we fail to realize the reason You do not answer that prayer request is that You have something bigger and better for us. We pray for crumbs when You can provide all of it. Let us always remember that just the gift of life is a blessing and that you so willingly gave Your Son to die for our sins. Thank you Jesus for dieing for our sins.
We ask all these things in Jesus holy name.
