No surprise here: the Psalms are my favorite part of the Bible. (Must be that all that beautiful poetry.) So here I am on Christmas Eve and feeling very blessed for my God. I haven’t had an easy life, but He has been with me every step of the way. Sometimes (or more than sometimes) I don’t thank Him enough for this. I get caught up in being happy and don’t come to Him to say I appreciate things. You know? I think I talk to Him more when things are rotten. And that’s not good.
But I understand the importance of this holiday, so much more than just giving presents and enjoying a meal with your family. Here’s a favorite thought of mine from the Psalms.
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” ~ Psalm 107:1 (NIV)
It’s a simple sentence, and yet it means everything. I appreciate it from the standpoint of a Christian and a writer. Beautiful words indeed!
