living thanksgiving...


our deep joy
is found only at the table of thanksgiving~
taking everything God gives as grace,
giving God our thanks for it,
then giving it to others

the giving of thanks
is what makes us well

the giving of thanks
always precedes the miracle

giving of thanks
manifests the fullness,
the wholeness, the completeness,
the joy,
of our salvation...

here's today's Bloom bookclub 
chapter 2 discussion with author Ann Voskamp

"i thank you, ADONAI...
See!  God is my salvation.
i am confident and  unafraid;
for Yah ADONAI is my strength and my song,
and He has become my salvation!

Then you will joyfully draw water
from the springs of salvation.
On that day you will say,
"Give thanks to ADONAI!
Call on His Name!"

Isaiah 12.1-4
Complete Jewish Bible

today may we offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving
the giving of thanks
even before the receiving

today may we intentionally choose the JOY
of living lives of eucharisteo
