I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way--in all your speaking and in all your knowledge--
This morning as I was listening to the rain outside my window, I thought how perfect it was for the plants I planted yesterday. I'm so thankful for this morning's rain.
This thankfulness, reminded me that this morning is a "Thank You" luncheon for some special angels at our church today. They deliver gift bags to our Octogenarians and a few others in our church and I'm so grateful that they take time out of their busy lives to be there for others to make their day a little brighter.
Have you expressed your thankfulness lately? Have you told your ministers thank you? What about the musicians? the secretary or administrative assistant? the youth minister? The christian education director? What about the committee chairs and committee members? The Sunday school teachers and helpers? Or the behind the scenes people? the janitors, the ushers, the greeters, the sound people or the media people?
There are so many people who make a church run, who put in countless hours bring the ministry of the church to it's members, visitors and the community. Take a few minutes today to say thank you. Take a few minutes each day this week and maybe send a card or email expressing your thanks to those who work so hard in the life of the church. It will delightfully surprise them and make you feel good too!

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks unto the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given
Jesus Christ, His Son (Repeat)
And now let the weak say, "I am strong,"
Let the poor say, "I am rich,"
Because of what
the Lord has done for us. (Repeat)
Give thanks (Repeat)
