2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
Psalm 100:4 (KJV)
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Col 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
As most of you know in September of last year my husband almost lost his life to a heart attack. This was right after we had taken our daughter for her first year of college.
This year only eleven months later in August we took our daughter to start her second year of school and while we were hundreds of miles and several hours away from our home town my husband became very ill and so close once again to losing his life. We rushed him to the hospital at about 3:30am in the morning not realizing this would turn into three days in ICU and a total of four days in the hospital. My daughter was scheduled to start school that Monday morning. My first concern of course was for my husband’s welfare and well-being. I also was concerned for the impact that this would have on my daughter as she began a new school year.
