New motto, begin writing your "thank yous" before they're needed . I've spent yesterday and today writing, texting, facebooking and calling in some "thank yous" to some of my hosts while I was out of town . I'm not sure if I picked this up when I graduated from high school or if it was always apart of me, but I've learned that thank you's are so very important . Accepting them, giving them, and realizing the importance that those two little words can have . They're important in our conversation with God and they're important in our daily conversations with people . Time is fleeting and we never know when our path and company will change . I've realized that waiting till things are done to say "thank you", sometimes takes away it's value.....for me anyway. I feel rushed, hurried, and pressured.
Psalm 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts
with praise! Give thanks to him, bless his name!
Jonah 2:9 But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving
That which I have vowed I will pay Salvation is from the LORD.
Colossians 4:2 (NAS) Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping
alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NAS) in everything give thanks; for this
is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
If you are reading this blog, I owe you a thanks! It has become therapeutic, ministry, and flat out fun to share with you what's going on in my life . Sharing everything from a craft, cooking, or shopping tip all the way to what I feel God is speaking into my heart with you is wonderful. So....................
I encourage you to take a minute and make a lil' thank you list. It is so much fun to think of different little ways to express your gratitude to the people in your life. I look forward to hearing about your creative ways of saying Thank You!
