This week’s memory verse: J is for…
Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children.”
A special Thanksgiving Hymn: “Still, My Soul Be Still” (Getty)
This is a newer hymn by the authors of “In Christ Alone” and might be unfamiliar so I wanted everyone to hear the beautiful tune. The lyrics are included in the video so I won’t be typing them out. Given the current state of things in our country, it’s even more crucial for us to take time to be still before our God and to be thankful that He is ruler over all things, Lord of heaven and earth. Happy Thanksgiving, friends!

Thank you, Julie and boys! That song is surely a balm to our souls “given the current state of things in our country.” The memory verse fits well. Jesus’ prayer followed His pronouncement of “woe” to several unrepentant cities at that time. Hopefully our wonderful country will not someday be included.
So sad we won’t get to celebrate God’s goodness all together with you. Will be sharing our Imu pit turkey with neighbors on the beach this year. Should be fun but not the same as being with family ):
Julie, I thoroughly enjoyed this precious Thanksgiving Hymn. Thank for sharing it with us! I’ll take this time to wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving Day, a time for us to reflect and be thankful to our Lord and Savior for His daily provision and faithfulness to us, His children.
And a blessed time to you and yours, sir.
Good morning Julie. Boys, I’m at work and I just listened to that song again. I understand why mom loves it so much. God is good and He is and will always be near. Work hard at your studies today and know that you have an excellent teacher who loves you. She has worked hard to the end that you would know Christ and His amazing attributes more and more each day. Today, I pray, as always, that you would obey your mother and be kind to your brothers and others. When you do, you honor the God who shaped our universe.
Yes, sir. Now, you be a good boy, too 🙂
Really lovely. Thank you for sharing it with us.
