Five Minutes on Thank You…{5 Minute Friday}


Two words. Two words pointed to heaven then outward to others. Two words that can change the perspective of my heart, and yours. If we let them. If we dare to utter the words. I remember reading how the words that portray thankfulness in the Bible are in the original language always encompass gratefulness that is God directed first. When I say thank you, I know that I am submitting to him first in this act. Think about it. To be grateful is an acceptance of whatever the gift is, but always acknowleges the giver. To withhold the words thank you then could be seen, pehaps as a rejection or lack thereof to the gift and the giver, yes? SO as I whisper thank you I am embracing both the giver and the gift with humble appreciation. Not expectation, disappointment or worthiness of my own. I accept both the goiver and the gift when I utter the words, thank you.


Post 5 Minute Note:

All this being said friends, in my 5 minute ramble, only makes me want to speak these words to you who are visiting and reading these words of mine as they spill out of my heart at this keyboard. I thank you for your visiting and reading. Thank you, friend today for receiving me as I am. I reciprocate and appreciate you, one in sweet hospitable grace. Appreciatively.
Thank you.
