It is my hope and prayer you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Gratitude doesn’t come natural to many of us. This is one of the first things we were taught, and we then tried to teach our children-to be grateful.
There are so many ways people show others how grateful they are; some people just say thank you; some send thank you cards, gifts are always a way to show others love and appreciation. (Giving gifts is known as one of the five love languages DR. Gary Chapman). People bake goods. People do all sorts of things to show others they are thankful. At early age we want to implant this attitude in our kids, especially when they get gifts, so that they remember to be grateful. Throughout the Bible, God’s kindness motivated people to praise him. People composed songs to God, some brought offerings and sacrifices to God just to show the LORD how thankful they were for his loving kindness.
