THANKFUL

Col. 3:12 "Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye THANKFUL.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."

As we grow older and older,
More thankful we become;
The little things we took for granted,
Have now become…awesome.

No need to dwell on what used to be,
It's gone…forevermore;
With a twinkle in our eye…we can look back,
Still, we're thankful some things are o'er.

Now, it is the thoughfulness,
And, kindly little deeds;
That we are so thankful for,
On this we all agree.

The phone call and the "Howdy-do",
The smile and warm handshake;
Thankfulness…high on the list,
Of this…make no mistake.

So too, our LORD looks for thankfulness,
In the people He has chosen;
Not because He needs anything,
He knows hard hearts must be softened.

He knows of what we're made,
Because it's He who made us;
A thankful heart…works both ways,
To the giver and receiver…thus.

He's teaching us His very nature,
For, like Him…we would be;
The giving of thanks…in all things,
O LORD, make me more like Thee.
