“A Thanksgiving Psalm
100 1-2 On your feet now—applaud God!
Bring a gift of laughter,
sing yourselves into his presence.
3 Know this: God is God, and God, God.
He made us; we didn’t make him.
We’re his people, his well-tended sheep.
4 Enter with the password: “Thank you!”
Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
Thank him. Worship him.
5 For God is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.“
Some things are just to good to be considered a coincidence.
co·in·ci·dence- a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.
I had a plan to share this video this morning of me just fooling around at the piano then my daughter joined me. As I sat and watched it with her I couldn’t help but BURST out in laughter as what she was doing.
My moments of worship often look like this one, interrupted by little voices, still in our PJs. Its all good. God doesn’t care, much to people’s surprise. He sees the intention, the potential, the fact that I made an attempt. He sees my heart. He takes delight in this moment of sheer reality.

its pretty awe-inspiring that psalm 100 is a Thanksgiving psalm. I did not know that before looking it up and looking it up in the message bible makes it all come other in real-life-moment perfectness.
“bring a gift of laughter”
CHECK! hahaha….I’ve accomplished that in life.
Maybe David had a similar experience happen when he wrote this? id love to see his every day. He was a blogger. obviously, he wrote everything down! IN SONG FORM, even better! I wonder if his life played out in like a Broadway musical in his mind.
the heart and center of David’s musical was God-that’s the important part to remember. He’s the VIP box right next to Statler and Waldorf. HA!…. sorry that’s a funny picture.
I think today is laughing day. Find someone to share a joke with. Have a good laugh, it leaves you feeling so good. Most often I think it leaves you with a thankful attitude.
maybe you need to learn to laugh? Lighten up a bit? There is a time for everything even laughter!
Q: What do you call a fake noodle?
