Today’s Verse: “I will give thanks in the great assembly; I will praise You among many people.” Psalms 35:18 (NKJV)
I Give Thanks For: Many Friends in Many Places
I was thinking this morning how amazing it would be to gather together all of my friends that I have had over the six decades of my life. Gather them from all the different places in the world – Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland, Norway, Belgium, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, India, Africa, China, Taiwan, Japan, Honduras, Mexico and all throughout the United States. Oh, if I could just gather them all together. It would be a LOT of people. I am blessed with an abundance of friends! I can just see, in my mind’s eye, all their precious faces! What an amazing reunion!!
And then, if we could all raise our voices in praise to our God! Can you imagine the sound? It’s already giving me goosebumps! Let’s sing some of my favorite hymns: like, “How Great Thou Art” or “Amazing Grace/My Chains Are Gone” or “It Is Well With My Soul” or “Like A River Glorious” or “My Jesus, I Love Thee” and then finish with “When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder.” Ahhh, I can just hear it! All the people, all the voices, all the languages coming together! What sound! What praise!
That is how I envision today’s offering of thanksgiving!
That is how I envision Heaven!
