Thanksgiving is near. I start my morning devotions by giving thanks for all I have, all I have endured, and all the blessings I don't even recognize. I pray you take time to reflect and recognize the blessings in your life. Here is a small list of praises this Thanksgiving season.

What does your alphabet of praises look like? I pray you take time to develop your own list of praises.
Thank God for all He has blessed you with and thank those in your life God might be using as a vessel to deliver his blessings.
I invite you to share one of your praises of thanksgiving with your family, friends and your fellow bloggers. Who knows, your praise might be another's encouragement today.
"With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the LORD: “He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.” And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid."
