I am sitting at my desk writing this blog, it is cold and raining outside, I have a hot cup of my favorite coffee to drink, I am warm and cozy! My life is good! I have so much to be thankful for, yet sometimes I don't act like it. Why is that? I am so thankful and grateful. Maybe I need to look up the meaning of those two words:
Definition of thankful
1 : conscious of benefit received. For what we are about to receive, make us truly thankful.
2 : expressive of thanks
3 : well pleased : glad
Definition of grateful
1a : appreciative of benefits received
b : expressing gratitude grateful thanks
b : pleasing by reason of comfort supplied or discomfort alleviated
These two words almost mean the same thing, yet they are a little bit different aren't they?
This leads me to our second Thanksgiving Verse:
I will praise the name of God with a song,
and will Magnify Him with Thanksgiving.
Do you know the names of God? If not that would be something fun to do. Find out the names of God and what each name means. Then you will understand the character of God just a little bit better.
Have a great week!
