What love the Father has lavished on us
That we should be called His sons and daughters
Precious in His sight
Greater love this world had never seen
When He hung on that tree
O why would He do such a thing
For dirty sinners like you and me?

O God thank You for loving me
When on the cross You made history
Lord You died for me
Forever my praise will go to Thee
O God thank You for choosing me
To be Your child and bear Your name
O Jesus I will never cease to sing Your praise

Verse 2:
Your love is patient and humble and kind
It's greater than all my sin
It always protects and trusts and hopes
And will have no end
It's Your love that lifted me up from the depths
Set my feet on a solid rock
With a firm place to stand
Lord I always will trust in Your loving hand

How wide how long
How high how deep
How endless is Your love for me
How wide how long
How high how deep
How endless is Your love for me

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. While trying to mentally write what my heart was feeling this Thanksgiving, I kept hearing the words of this song. The wonder of being called His child and knowing the great price that was paid to make that possible; the lavish love that the Father pours out on each one of us. I cannot express it any better than that. My heart fills with gratitude and my eyes fill with tears as I read through those words. How undeserving I am; how loving He is. If that were all there was to give thanks for this Thanksgiving Day, it would be more than enough. Yet He pours out abundant blessings moment by moment, every single day.

Father in Heaven how we love and thank You for the priceless treasure You have placed in our hands . You have given us Your name and claimed us as Your children. We have blessings for today and hope for a future that is so wonderful our minds can scarce take it in.

Thank You.

Dearest Linda...
I sing with you.
Praise God with you...
We have that same picture framed in our house... I can see it from here as I type.

God is so, so, so good.
Yes, as your pastor said: we can thank God when He gives us bad. Because it never is bad --- only for our good.

Thanking Him with you, dear friend... Love to you and Steve...
