Give Thanks

As we near thanksgiving, it is time to give thanks.
Here is a poem on the subject.
Give Thanks

Gather together
Rejoice - for
and in all things.
Be thankful.

Learn to
give thanks
Be blessed
& bless others.

Your thanksgiving
pleases Me, (gives Me joy).
It is a fragrant
offering to Me.

When you give thanks
it blesses you.
You learn to
be grateful.

If you are grateful
it helps strengthen.
Helps you endure.
Helps you persevere.

Being thankful
blesses others.
It can melt cold hearts
& encourage others.
(Psalm 100, 1st Thessalonians. 5:16-18)
(inspired by Allen R., November 20, 2005).

There is a certain energy that comes with being thankful, isn't there? Whenever I opt for selfish reactions I find it sucks the life out of me.

That doesn't mean I always remember to be thankful. :)

Thanks Presbypoet.
