Worship Wednesdays - Five Songs of Thanksgiving

I can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving! With all the wonderful and challenging things that have happened to us over the past year, we have so many reasons to give thanks.

As we approach Thanksgiving, here are 5 of my favourite songs of gratitude:

Blessings, by Laura Story.
Having experienced my own season of deep grief, I love this reminder that blessings can come from challenging and unexpected places.

My Heart is Filled, by Keith and Kristyn Getty
"For every day I have on Earth is given by the King; So I will give my life, my all,
to love and follow him." After our car accident, this line became my strength.

Thank You, by Ray Boltz
A song of thanks for everyone who has ever shared the Gospel, 
and an encouragement for each us to do the same.

What a Friend, by Joseph Scriven
A hymn rich in gratitude for the love and trust we have in Jesus.

What a Wonderful World, by Louis Armstrong
A love song to creation and the beauty of everyday living.

I'd love to hear your suggestions for Thanksgiving songs and hymns!
