Today, I am Linking up, and doing the 5 Minute Friday Post. Sadly, they are taking a break in December, so, I won't be having any posts here about 5 Minute Fridays.
When a child becomes old enough, we teach them manners. WE teach them to say, " Thank You" "Please" and "Your Welcome" We have always been taught to say those, and we will continue for the rest of our lives.
Saying thank you means more when your older. We appreciate more. We learn to know, what to be thankful for. Everyday we probably say thank you a lot and not even realize that we say it. It has become more and more habitual, that we just say it.
Last week, I taught my grade two's how to pray. So I used the Acronym, " PRAY" Which I told them meant, P= Praise him ( Thank Jesus) R= Rest in his arms A= Ask him and Y= Say YES To JESUS! I made sure that somewhere in there, it said Praise him, or Thank him. Cause we have so Much to thank God for, it's not even funny.
All the items we use in our daily lives, we need to thank God for. A Computer, a Key bored, A Bible, A House, A Camera, Some paper, A rosary, A job, Money to live, Food... I think you get the point. We really have to thank God for all of this. Well, for two reasons: 1) Because others don't have it and 2) Because God cared about us to give it to us. Now, i'm not saying God doesn't care about the person that doesn't have it, I'm saying, we are blessed to have them.
We are so lucky, to live in the countries we do. They all have there up's and downs. I know most of my viewers come from the United States, so does Lisa-jo ( i'm guessing that why she made it about thankfulness) On the day of thanksgiving here in Canada, I made the promise/pledge to write posts on what i'm thankful for. And I kinda stopped that last week or so. I am going to continue with that, and to show what i'm really thankful for.
