“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Thank God for the tall, green grass.
Thank Him for the trees.
Thank Him for the flowers bright.
Thank Him for bumble bees!
Thank God for Mom and Dad.
Gramps and Grandma, too.
Thank Him for your special friends.
Say thanks for all things new.
Be ever grateful in your heart
For what God gives each day;
For chores that you must do
And for games that you can play.
Don’t forget to say your prayers.
And start them off with thanks,
Remembering it is our God,
Who hears us when we ask.
God will answer all our prayers,
With, “wait,” or “yes” or “no.”
But we must ask with grateful hearts,
And the Bible tells us so.
Be thankful for the hard times,
Be thankful for the fun.
For it is God who gives them all,
Each and every one!
Fun Fact: God gives us hard times and fun times.
