FULL of Thanks

The giving of thanks.  It's that time of year when we "officially" bow our hearts and heads, fold our hands and offer thanks to God for His provisions.  But do we truly understand what it means to give thanks, to be full of thanks?


Pause with me for a moment.  What does the giving on thanks look like....feel like?


We're told that to give thanks is....


to express gratitude
to offer appreciation
to feel the benefit of another 
to acknowledge contribution to our life


How are we doing?  Daily? Today? Right now?


We know from the Living Word that 'out of the ABUNDANCE of the heart the mouth speaks.'


So, we give ourselves away, quite literally, by what we share with others, what others hear from us.


I would encourage ALL of us to cultivate an attitude of gratitude, friends!!


We have so many reasons to be FULL of thanks!!


Why not take the next 30 seconds and write down for what/who YOU are full of thanks!!


If it's a person...TELL THEM!!!  If it's an object, use it well and share it liberally!!


Let's be known as people FULL of thanks....all year long!!


FULL of thanks for YOU,


Ele
