Are You A Thanks Giver?




Are You A Thanks Giver?

Are you a thanks giver
As you walk along your way?
Do you remember to really
Thank God when you pray?

Do you talk to God
Like the Friend He really is
Thanking God for what
He constantly daily gives?

Are you thankful
Only for earthly things,
Or also for things heavenly
Does your heart sing?

Do you thank Him
Through good and bad?
Do you keep thanking God
No matter how happy or sad?

Are you a thanks giver
As you walk along your way?
Do you remember to really
Thank God when you pray?

We can never thank God enough for what He was done for us.  We tend to thank Him for material things, but should also remember the spiritual things.  The first is that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to be our Rescuer and Leader.  This is not only something that happens when we trust Him, but continues to happen now, and in the future.

I am thankful to God for all of you who follow my blog whether by email; web browsers; or Linkedin.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
