I Thessalonians 5:18
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
The topic for the Kitchenettes last night was "thankfulness" and "expressing a grateful heart".
The girls learned how to respond properly when someone gives you a gift, shows you kindness or does something special for you. It is important to know how to serve others and to make people feel loved and cared about ~ there are a variety of ways through hospitality to demonstrate this quality. It is just as important to be able to receive that very same thing from someone else! It honors God to have an attitude of gratitude in ALL things.
Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus.
We had a wonderful time creating gifts for someone in our life who we wanted thank. The Kitchenettes each picked someone special and designed their own homemade cards along with making chocolate heart lollipops! They were beautiful - not only because because of what we could see with our eyes - but the love that each girl poured into those little masterpieces was evident.
II Corinthians 9:15
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
Today as you go about your day think about the ultimate gift that was given from a loving and devoted God. Tell the Lord how thankful you are for all things in all situations all of the time. I plan on spending my time today with a grateful heart!
