Laura Zurn has taken on the weekly task of creating our church bulletin, and over the next weeks and months please look to this page for information gathered from those bulletins. We can’t thank Laura enough for all she does! We hope you will join us for worship and to meet Laura, and all of us at Jewett City Baptist Church.
Thank you, God, For Everything
Thank you, God, for everything
the big things and the small
For every good gift comes from God,
the Giver of them all.
And all too often we accept,
without any thanks or praise,
The gifts God sends as blessings
each day in many ways.
And so at this time we offer up a prayer
To thank You, God, for giving us
a lot more than our share.
First, thank You for the little things
that often come our way—
The things we take for granted
and don’t mention when we pray—
Oh, make us more aware, dear God,
of little daily graces
That come to us with sweet surprise
from never-dreamed-of places…
And help us to remember that
the key to life and living
Is to make each prayer a prayer of thanks
and every day Thanksgiving.
