Giving Thanks

This was in the Church bulletin this past weekend and I wanted to share.

Give Thanks~ Author  Unknown

True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him. As we pause to thank Him for the blessings of the past year, we must not forget to thank Him for the lessons we have learned through difficult times.We are not to be thankful for just the pleasant, easy things, but ALL things. Some people complain because God put thorns on roses, while others praise Him for putting roses among thorns. We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.

I pray that everyone has a very HAPPY and BLESSED Thanksgiving !
