A Mark Twain Kind of Thank You Crumbs
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
Worried? Put your request before God, and don’t forget to thank Him ahead of time for His answer. Thanksgiving denotes faith and faith pleases God.
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. Erma Bombeck
The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving. ~H.U. Westermayer
“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” William Arthur Ward
“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
The two greatest sacrifices we can make are to praise God even when we don’t feel like it and to do good and share with others, even when it isn’t easy. (application of Hebrews 13:15-16)
