Happy Thanksgiving!

     In place of the monthly book review, and since Thanksgiving is this week, I decided to do something different. Thanksgiving is probably the one day of the year when many people actually stop to consider the Lord's blessings and thank Him for them. So what does the Bible say about giving thanks? When should we give thanks, why, and for what? Here are a few passages that speak on the topic of thanksgiving.

// Have Mercy O God! //

Have mercy O God!
On this, a nation once filled with light,
but now has put your Word far from sight,
flaunts her sins, black as night,
murders innocents, a terrible blight,
on this, a nation once filled with light.

Have mercy dear Lord!
Please open our eyes, help us to see,
your forgiveness is what we desperately need,
not jobs, or peace, or prosperity,
for Your grace alone is what makes us free,
please open our eyes help us to see. 

Have mercy O God!
Upon those who sorrowfully mourn,
for our once great nation, by sin now torn
Lift up your church, she sits forlorn,
exalt Your name, it bears much scorn,
and comfort those who sorrowfully mourn.  

Please remember to pray for America as we are facing troubling times. I'd encourage you to read Jeremiah 5, Jeremiah 27:5, and Daniel 4:17.

A Night of Lights - Short Story

     This is somewhat of an experimental piece. One day I got the inspiration to try writing in a different style than I normally do. Let me know what you think!
