The words of one of  Andrae Crouch’s greatest songs rang in my head today:

How can I say thanks
for the things You have done for me?
Things so undeserved,
yet You gave to prove Your love for me;
the voices of a million angels
could not express my gratitude.
All that I am and ever hope to be,
I owe it all to Thee
. "My Tribute" – Words and music by Andrae Crouch

This is a song that transcends generations because of its’ timeless truth:

With His blood, He has saved me
By His power, He has raised me.
To God be the glory
For the things he has done
. "My Tribute", Andrae Crouch 

During this Thanksgiving week, we’re thankful for the bounty that we will partake in; for the homes we can share it in; for the transportation that takes us there; for warm clothes to wear on the way; we’re thankful for many, many THINGS – but what would they be, had not "HIS blood, saved us? How could we enjoy them if HIS power, not raised us  Whatever we have, whatever we are – "To God" – be (all) the glory for the things He has done!
