Thank You JESUS!!
I taught children's church this past Sunday. It was a pretty easy Sunday to have it considering Thanksgiving was coming up. I taught on Psalm 138:1, "I will praise thee with my whole heart!"
And let me tell you, little kids can do some praise. I played a game with them where I would name something, and if they were thankful for it, they would say, "Thank You Jesus!" They were very exuberant when they shouted out, "THANK YOU JESUS!"
Then I asked them individually what they were thankful for when we made crafts. Of course they all said moms, dads, brothers, sisters. But they were also thankful for houses, wagons, grass, leaves, flowers, dogs, cats, baths, and the list goes on.
Basically, they were thankful for EVERYTHING. And they were excited in their thanks. And I started to feel a bit guilty. I mean, when is the last time I thanked God for a warm bath? Or for the beautiful flowers I see everyday?
So today, I'm thanking God with my whole heart. Even for the littlest things! Because those are the things that really make you the happiest! Things like pictures of my daughter to look at while I'm at work. And things like tea from Bojangles to wake me up! And Sugar Free Snack Packs so that I can have a low calorie treat!
What little things are you thanking God for today?
