Giving Thanks, Hallelujah

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States. "Thanksgiving Day, is a harvest festival. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general. It is primarily a North American holiday which has generally become a national secular holiday with religious origins.

Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States." Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is supposed to be a day to give thanks and to be grateful. I find it kind of funny to have a day to be thankful, because I am grateful and happy for everyday the Lord blesses me with. Don't get me wrong, I think it an awesome holiday because it brings families together but shouldn't we be pleased for everyday we receive? Especially me, I mean the LORD, could have taken my life when I was two years old, but my purpose was not fulfilled, that is why I am still here!:) Hallelujah!

Hallelujah, Halleluyah, or Alleluia: A shout or song of praise to God. "Hallel" means "praise." "Jah" is an abbreviation of "YWVH" or Yahweh. Hallelujah

I am thankful for so much. I don't think I could fit it all on here. If I did, most of you would probably get tired of reading it all. I believe that instead of just being thankful we should also give honor and praise to God because without him none of this is possible. Praise the LORD, for all that he created!

"Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.

Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

He hath also established them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall

not pass.Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:

Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word:

Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:

Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:

Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:

Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:

Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is
above the earth and heaven.

He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD

[Psalm 148 KJV]

This beautiful Psalm shows us that we should appreciate our LORD, the creator of all things and give praise to him. Everything gives praise to Jehovah, everything from the heavens, angels, the universe, the planets, the stars, the earth, the fish, different sea creatures, fire, hail, snow, and vapors, the stormy winds, mountains, hills, fruitful trees, and plants. Praise Yahweh for, animals, insects, birds, all people; young, old, from kings to servants, and of course the children of Israel. Praise the LORD!

Thanksgiving is all about being grateful and appreciative for our Creator and we should be giving him praise everyday, not just on this holiday. So give thanks for all things, enjoy yourselves, the company of your families, and your turkey dinner but try to be obliged for everyday that we receive in God's beautiful creation! I do wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving! So be Safe and have fun!

Take Care and God bless!
