Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!”
Angels listen as I sing my thanks.
I kneel in worship facing your holy temple
and say it again: “Thank you!”
Thank you for your love,
thank you for your faithfulness;
Most holy is your name,
most holy is your Word.
The moment I called out, you stepped in;
you made my life large with strength...
Finish what you started in me, God.
Your love is eternal—don’t quit on me now."
Thank You! I appreciate you! May I help you? Excuse me! Let me help you? You go ahead! Please? I love you! Thank You!
Are these the kind of phrases that permeate your conversations, your writings/texts/posts, your thoughts? If you watch/listen/read much of the general news today, you could easily conclude that our society is so angry it is beyond repair or salvation, That we are so obsessed with the worst side of human nature, with taking advantage of those around us,
Those phrases above, "Thank You!...Thank You!", are all phrases I heard yesterday as we moved through our day.
Our morning contained caring for our animals, washing and hanging out clothes, finishing touches on tonight's lesson from Job, Mowing more than an acre of yard, trimming limbs from four large tree's where the limbs were so low it was difficult to walk or mow under them.
Since a lot of this activity happened in the front yard, SweetHeart and Patches had a great times playing with and around Kass and I, especially trimming the tree's,and sitting in the shade when we took frequent water breaks! So we used several of those phrases with each other.
After we worked until we were tired, it was time to go to town and shop!! Many places were very busy and fairly crowded. I do not remember any rude comments, or exasperating people. Our afternoon was filled with these wonderful phrases and attitudes. People were hot, many were tired, yet the attitude of the day, here in Oklahoma, seemed to be politeness, caring, patience, kindness and good will!!!
Thank You Lord for a day that reminded us that there are many, many, many people who are filled or influenced by your goodness and try to reflect those Biblical principles in their everyday lives!
My heart is singing as I write and prepare to go to Sunday School and Worship Celebration!! Thank you Lord for yesterday! I am anxious to see what you have in store today!!
Let our hearts and minds be open to your will and your way!!!
"Thank You! Everything in me says "Thank you!""
