30 Days of Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for the mercy of God! His mercies according to Jeremiah (Lamentations 3) never come to an end; are new and fresh every morning, and they are based on his faithfulness. Thank you God for being a merciful God and for taking pity on me. I thank you that you always remember my "frame" and that I am but "dust."
