We gathered in worship this morning considering the theme “Be Grateful”.  A children’s story was shared which gave a lesson about saying “thank you”.   There are many people to be grateful to and many things to be grateful for.  Have you said “thank you” lately?  We also talked about responding to blessings by “paying it forward” to others.  From Living Life as a Thank You, “Select someone who needs a gesture of kindness or something kind that someone once gave to you.  With gratitude for what was given to you, reach out and give back.  It can be a simple gesture, like sending a card.  Or calling someone who is sick and saying you care.”  How will you express your gratitude this week?
