Come... and ask.



Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

"Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide for our wants to be supplied.   Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home".



Just thinking ahead of our time together as a family, this coming Thanksgiving Day! 
And as a different Thanksgiving hymn says; "We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing...".


I know were grateful for his blessing of days past, but do we think about coming to ask his blessing for our future days?  I hope so.   I desire to have a constant "attitude of gratitude" ~ everyday.
But a humble posture in coming before the Lord to ask for his future blessing, is also my desire.

: :  Which do you find easier (or harder) to do?  To thank him for blessings, or to ask him for blessings?
Just something to think about.


Happy Thanksgiving ~ and blessings to all.
