With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I’ve been thinking a lot about thanks! I think we are happier when we practice being thankful! We are nicer, more aware of others and being thankful makes us feel good too! Thankfulness is like a reset button for a bad day, bad attitude, bad what-ails-you! Let’s talk about the real meaning of Thanksgiving!
The Hebrew word Thanksgiving comes from the root word “yada”. It has a wonderful, word-picture meaning. It’s the idea of throwing our hands up to God with thanks and praise in them. As if we are literally throwing our hands up filled with tangible words of thanks and tossing them like confetti up to the Lord. It reminds me of watching a football player make a touchdown and the fan going hands-in-the-air, high-five wild! Today I want to share your thanks on these pages!
Let’s worship God right here! Let’s all throw up our hands filled with thanksgiving together! I’d like you to share 3 things you are thankful for right here!!! And please read the person’s list before you and thank God for that person and their list of thankfulness too. Let’s get into the true spirit of Thanksgiving this morning!!!
And as you meet with family and friends for Thanksgiving make sure to throw up your hands filled with thanks too!
Happy Thanksgiving my dear wonderful friends! I will be throwing up thankful hands to the Lord as I am thankful for YOU!
