Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4
Oh, how I love the picture of dancing my way through one of the 12 gates of the New Jerusalem, each one made of a single pearl, on streets of gold as transparent as glass, and straight into the court of the Almighty! What a joy it will be to sing praises to Him, overflowing with thanksgiving for His mercy and grace in allowing us to share the shepherding message all over the world!
May your joy be full, may your cup overflow, and may your gratitude be abundant this Thanksgiving season!
