Thanksgiving at the End of the Day

Thank you, O God for everything that has happened today: for the good things which have made me happy; for the not so good things which have taught me that I canít always be getting my own way; for successes, to give me happy times to remember; for failures, to keep me humble; for time at school, at work, traveling, at leisure, with my friends and in my own home. And thank you for this minute with you. In Christ‚Äôs name I pray,


Genesis 36 (excerpts) (NASB)

Esau and the Edomites
Illuminated Letter T

hese are the generations of Esau (that is, Edom). . . .

Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the members of his household, his livestock, all his beasts, and all his property that he had acquired in the land of Canaan. He went into a land away from his brother Jacob. For their possessions were too great for them to dwell together. The land of their sojournings could not support them because of their livestock. So Esau settled in the hill country of Seir. (Esau is Edom.)

These are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in the hill country of Seir. These are the names of Esau's sons: Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau . . . . [Long list of names omitted.]

These are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom, before any king reigned over the Israelites. Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom, the name of his city being Dinhabah. . . . [Long list of names omitted.] These are the chiefs of Edom (that is, Esau, the father of Edom), according to their dwelling places in the land of their possession.


Oh God who has made me, oh God who keeps me, oh God who will be my Lord through all eternity, shine down Your blessings and wisdom upon me like the sun upon a field; and may I keep You in the forefront of my every thought and deed, this evening, throughout the day tomorrow, and evermore.
