“Give thanks to the Lord because he is good,
because his mercy endures forever.”
“I lub you, Omi.” Those words come daily from my 4-year-old grandson. There isn’t any particular action that precedes his statement . . . it’s one of those “just because” reasons. It always warms my heart to hear it. It never gets “old.”
I am quite sure that our Lord loves to hear those words coming from the hearts of His children. No particular reason necessary, although the list is miles long.
The Thanksgiving season is a good heart-primer for the coming Christmas holidays, when we will again focus on the Greatest Gift of all . . . Jesus coming to us.
In the midst of the chaos and challenges we face, may we often – spontaneously – speak the simple words that mean so much to any parent’s heart: “I love You. Thank You.”
