Thankful Thursdays - Give Thanks in All Circumstances - 1 Thessalonians 5:18

As we enter the month of November and "head" towards Thanksgiving Day, I thought it would be encouraging to focus upon being thankful. So, since today is Thursday and Thanksgiving Day is on a Thursday, I thought I'd observe, "Thankful Thursdays" and share a verse or two each Thursday to help us focus upon being thankful and encourage us to model to and teach our grandchildren to be thankful as well.

I wrote yesterday about trusting God in all circumstances; isn't it wonderful to know we are also able to be thankful and give thanks to God in all circumstances as well! Yes, we are certainly and absolutely thankful for our many blessings, large and small, but we are able to be thankful to God for all things . . . the blessings and the challenges as well.

When we model to our sons, daughters, in-laws and grandchildren how we are thankful no matter what, we are handing down the faith. When we are faithful to do this, it will become something for which our children and children's children are able to be thankful as well. In fact, this is one of the biggest blessings we will ever be able to hand down to those who come behind us - the example of a truly, all the time, thankful grandma (and this goes for grandpas, too!).
