“Give thanks in everything” –1 Thessalonians 5:18

So as this is the month is about giving thanks, I have the following: A 9 year-old boy from Lake Park was talking to me this summer. He had just had a very bad day, falling from his bike and his dog had just died. He stopped to talk to me because he had been at our VBS. And he asked if it was weird to say thanks to God on a day like that. When I said not at all he then said, “Well I’ve been thinking about it, and so I made this picture (it was of his dog) so that he will recognize my dog and then get to play with him and run with him like I did. After all, God just loaned him to me for a while. I can’t think of a better way to thank Jesus.” I am giving you all a spiritual growth task—how would you really thank God from your heart? Be creative, make something or write a poem or sing a song or draw or make something just to say Thanks to God!
