Happy Thanksgiving!

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.  
For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods 
~Psalm 95:2-3

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever 
~1 Chronicles 16:34

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and 
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God 
~ Philipians 4:6
