30 Days of Thanks: How to Take Your Thanksgiving Thankfulness to the Next Level – Daily devotionals and Bible study tutorials leading you to deeper intimacy with God – One Thing Alone

But what if this year we took our thankfulness to the next level? What if we went from simply posting photos of stuff to actually impacting people’s lives with our gratitude?

“How can I do that?” you ask.

Simple. After thanking God for whatever it is you’re grateful for, take 2 seconds and thank the person who made it possible. Because while all good and perfect gifts come from the Father of lights, those blessings usually come through the wonderful people in our lives.

So this month, I encourage you to take your Thanksgiving thankfulness one step further. After we say “thank You” to God, let’s also turn to the person next to us and say “thank you” to them as well.

The meal in front of you? Write a quick thank-you note to the person who made it.
Your paycheck? Thank your employer for giving you a job.
A quiet Sunday morning of worship? Thank the nursery workers who watch all the kids.
At first, this may seem strange, but imagine what a beautiful difference you would make in the lives of people around you if you intentionally thanked them every day. Because thankfulness multiplies and sends more thanksgivings to the throneroom of God when we share our gratitude with others.

I Am Thankful For An Awesome Event And Being Able To Rest Afterwards – Day 15

I was the go to person for getting everything set up at the park.
Our volunteer co-ordinator made arrangements for the actual event. I am very glad I didn’t have to. Sometimes it is nice to be in the background getting it done and not having to be the person in the spotlight. She dealt with All the media.
Even Danny was left out of most of it.
We got the BALL rolling and worked on it for 3 years behind the scenes.
It was wonderful though for it to be acknowledged officially.
