Give Thanks!

Being an out-of-the-ordinary, quiet Thanksgiving day here this year, with a small turkey breast in the oven and some time on my hands, I thought I'd visit my blogging buddies - not really expecting many to be posting.

Fortunately, Cheryl's post at Thinking of Home was the first post I landed on and I was so blessed by the song she linked to, I am inspired to follow suit and share a word of praise to my Heavenly Father -  the One who provides, the One to whom thanks is due, the One in whom I place my trust and faith.

Before clicking the link on Cheryl's post today, I don't think I'd ever before heard the hymn Behold Our God, but it's truly a beautiful song - in word and tune.  Simple and easy to sing.  Do visit Cheryl's blog and listen to the version she linked to. 

And just because I was curious, I went looking for other versions of this song.  I'm always fascinated by technology that allows musicians to do things with voices and instruments that couldn't have been done even 20 years ago.  If you're so inclined to click on the video below, I hope you not only enjoy what Michael Lining has done with technology, but that you let the words and music touch your spirit.

I hope you have a blessed and truly thanks-filled Thanksgiving today.

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father of lights, 
with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
~ James 1:17 NASB


  1. That video is utterly amazing! Thank you Becki for sharing that - I will pass it along to friends that I know will enjoy it too. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  2. It is very beautiful and I haven't heard it either. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I had never heard this song either. What a beautiful one too. Thank you for sharing. I am very thankful to have "met" you. Blessings on you and yours.

  4. Becki, this version of the song that you found is also lovely! I love acapella music, particularly when the parts are all sung by one person! Incidentally, as I was compiling my Thanksgiving playlist, I came across a different hymn (Now Thank We All Our God) by this same singer, and added it to my list! I will need to see what other songs he has recorded.

    Hope your Thanksgiving was lovely, even if different. Thanks for letting me know that you were inspired by the song I shared!

  5. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.

  6. Happy Thanksgiving Becki! :) xx

  7. I think those kinds of videos are neat too and kudos to this man for putting himeself out there and being so talented.
