Sharings from the graveyard

This has got nothing to do with creepy or death stuff.

My family and I went over to visit the graveyard of my grandparents(dad's side) and aunt in Klang. We also visited my granduncle's graveyard, who happened to be a Christian.

And this is a little something i saw at my granduncle's graveyard, and i thought it's worth sharing here in blog:

Thanks, O God, for boundless mercy.

From Thy gracious throne above;

thanks for every need provided,

from the fullness of Thy love!

Thanks for daily toil and labour,

and for rest when shadows fall;

thanks for love of friend and neighbour,

and Thy goodness unto all!

Thanks for thorns as well as roses,

thanks for weakness and for health;

thanks for clouds as well as sunshine,

thanks for poverty and wealth!

Thanks for pain as well as pleasure,

all Thou sendest day by day;

and Thy word, our dearest treasure.

Shedding light upon our way.

Thanks, O God, for home and fire-side,

where we share our daily bread;

thanks for hours of sweet communion,

when by Thee our souls are fed!

Thanks for grace in time of sorrow.

And for joy and peace in Thee;

thanks for hope today, tomorrow,

and for all eternity!

From the passage above, "thanks" was mentioned so many times! And if you realised, it's associated with the good things, bad things, big things and small things in life..

The bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, "Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Hence, let us live out 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 in our life, for Hope is here with us today, tomorrow and for all eternity.
