Psalm 100 – Praise and Thanksgiving

I’ve been in Austin, Texas for the past week visiting family who I haven’t seen in a long time. In honor of the 100+ degree temperatures in Austin, I decided to post Psalm 100 for today. It is a wonderful Psalm praising God for His creation, and I think it is appropriate even when it is hotter than blazes. We should praise God at all times for He alone is able to create something from nothing.

I also think this is an appropriate Psalm for today because I am thankful to God that I was able, along with my sister, to go to visit aunts, cousins, and the next generation of our family.

Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving thanks.

 1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
 2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
   come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the LORD is God.
   It is he who made us, and we are his;
   we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
   and his courts with praise;
   give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
   his faithfulness continues through all generations.

    Thanks for this Psalm, Linda

    Hope you had a chance to take lots of pictures! ( I’m the chronicler in my family – do forgive me 🙂 )

    I am celebrating in thanksgiving today too! We have much to be thankful for.

    Blessings much,


    • Ann, I didn’t take many pictures, but my sister took over 800 pictures during the week. Unfortunately, when we tried to put them on my laptop last night before she headed home, my computer said her SD card needed to be formatted. It seems that the x-ray machine at the airport might have erased all her pictures. I’m praying she will be able to recover them, because there were some great family photos that she took. Peace, Linda
