Giving Thanks

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon His name;
make known His deeds among the peoples!
1 Chronicles 16:8 

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!
1 Chronicles 16:34

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
Psalms 9:1

God is good!  We have been so very blessed this year.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving lunch with a family from church who have boys in our youth group.  Then we had dinner with our dear friends that we knew from Norfolk, that just finished up seminary and are working locally.  Tonight, we are getting together with a bunch of friends to have a Thanksgiving let the festivities continue!  

God has been so good to give us such a rich community of friends here in St Louis while we are so far from home.  Today I am looking forward to some more baking and cooking for tonight, setting up our Willow Tree Nativity set, ordering Christmas cards and trying to talk Marty into setting up our little artificial tree.  We may even squeeze a Christmas movie in there as well :)  I hope y'all are enjoying the long weekend off with family and/or friends!

This is a question for Marty: in your experiences, what version of the bible do most presbyterians study? We have started attending a PCA church plant in Smithfield and I've noticed both in Sunday school and in the sermons the versions are not NIV(what I've always used.) thanks!
