Did you know that the word worship is, in fact, derived from an Old English word meaning to acknowledge the worth or value of something? That was one of the new things I learned this week.
It's Thankful Thursday and as always I have a list of things I'm thankful for today.
There are moments when we just want to thank God for the good things in our lives, and praise God for the amazing world around us.
I can imagine that a prayer of thank you was the first prayer ever uttered: Thank you for the deep blue of sky and the green of grasses. Thank you for food to eat, clothes to wear and a place to sleep.
I'm always thankful too for my health and the good health of those in my family too
I'm thankful for smiles and hugs that make my days complete
I'm thankful for the beautiful spring days we've been having
I'm thankful tor the new life that is coming in our family this week.
We might do our hearts, minds and bodies a big favor if we could meet every day with an attitude of gratitude. Of course, we already know it's good for the soul.
I'm thankful for this Thursday and I hope you all are too!
