“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Psalm 107:1 (NIV)

The book, Thank You God, By P. K. Hallinan, is a current favorite of our two year old. This little board book is filled with colorful pictures and rhyming words. The message is simple but powerful. This book thanks God for everything from pets to food. It ends with the phrase “Thank you dear God for all that I see, but most of all thank you for just loving me.” Each night we read the “shank you Gog” book, and I am reminded of all the simple blessings that surround me everyday. Most of the time I rush from place to place, forgetting the little blessings that cross my hurried path. As I have grown I find the joy is often overshadowed by the darkness. David tells us in Psalm 107 “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” God is with us, God is our friend and God loves us. Simple as that. Tonight before you go to bed, write down five ways you saw God’s love today. You will be amazed where he shows up.
