The Power of "Thank You"
Yesterday's news about Vann's sister's home was devastating. But this morning as I was getting ready for work a gift from God came.
God helped me recall something that happened yesterday. One of our residents came to see me with some more bad news about their son's health. He asked that I pray with he and his wife. While this resident and I prayed for healing for his son, his wife simply prayed, "Thank you."
Thank you, Father, for the reminder. Peace is all about being thankful. Thank you that Andrea and Greg are safe and unharmed. Thank you that they have cars that can get them where they need to be. Thank you that they have friends and each other.
Thank you for the reminder to be thankful.
