On your feet! Bless God, your God, for ever and ever!

Sometimes kids say the funniest things.  While on a field trip with the 4th Grade this week, one of the boys said he was feeling sick.  I ask him if he was sick of the games, or sick sick.  His reply was classic:

The last time I felt this way it was bad. Pants were full, stomach empty, undigested food everywhere.

With that I counted my blessings  and moved along.

So anyway, as you move closer to Thanksgiving, lets be thankful for empty pants, full stomachs and that wonderful blessing that food is everywhere!!!  And praise like these man of faith from our history:

4-5 A group of Levites—Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Kenani—stood on the platform and cried out to God, their God, in a loud voice. The Levites Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah said, “On your feet! Bless God, your God, for ever and ever!

5-6 Blessed be your glorious name,
exalted above all blessing and praise! You’re the one,
God, you alone; You made the heavens,
the heavens of heavens, and all angels; The earth and everything on it,
the seas and everything in them; You keep them all alive;
heaven’s angels worship you! (Nehemiah 9:5-6, The Message)

Check out the whole of Nehemiah 9.
