Two powerful words

By Chuck Kajer

Thank you.

Those are two of the most powerful words in the English language.

It's a simple acknowledgement of gratitude that takes little effort. When spoken among family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances or even strangers, those two words are often taken for granted. But they do convey a deep meaning.

Thanksgiving is a time when we give extra thanks to the Creator for all that He has given us. Just as we do with our friends, though, sometimes we take God for granted. God is someone people turn to in a time of need, asking for a favor, a sign, relief, or strength when facing a crisis. When things are going well, we often forget to consider what gifts we have been given. And yet, those two words take so little effort.

Thank you.

When the Pilgrims survived that first winter, with the help of the Native Americans, they remembered their time of need and the gifts they were given to not only help them through it, but also to strengthen their community. And they gave thanks.

On Thanksgiving Day, don't forget those two simple, yet powerful words. To whomever prepares the meal, say Thanks. To the people who clear the table, say Thanks. To those family and friends seated at the table who have helped you in any way, say Thanks.

Most importantly, take time to thank God for all He has given you. It may be something you've neglected to do throughout the past year.
