God has surely been very good to me. I have more blessings than I can count! One such blessing is I had the opportunity to volunteer in my son’s kindergarten class during the school year. I helped with the classroom parties, and I was able to chaperone the end of the year field trip. Another blessing, my son’s school sees the value in, and teaches the children to say “thank you”. At the end of each school year, breakfast is held in honor of all the volunteers; classroom, lunchroom, recess, and chaperones. During this time, each class comes into the cafeteria to say thank you in their own special way. They do this with a cute song, poem, or handmade thank you cards. It was absolutely adorable! It melted my heart and reminded me of all the things I am thankful for, and who I am thankful to.
“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” – Psalm 9:1
What I’m getting at is, we all need to remember to be thankful, first to God, and also to the people around us. We all have people in our lives who go above and beyond and deserve a genuine Thank You.
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Maybe when you give thanks to those special someone/s in your life, they might be reminded of all the things they are thankful for, and in turn give their thanks to God and the special people in their lives too. Let’s start a thankful movement!
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” – Colossians 3:17
