How Many Ways?

How many ways can you say Thank You?

This prompt made me wonder about the ways we show our appreciation. Before I had a chance to get on my computer and augment the post, my dear friend, Peter, responded with a delightful answer. Ah yes, animals know best! Their wordless acts of appreciation tell the whole story! Which of these speaks most loudly to your heart?

Peter suggested a lick on the cheek… Oh yes!

One way I like to say thank you
is by inviting a generous, helpful friend
to come for dinner.

It doesn’t need to be Thanksgiving when we express our gratitude with a meal!

Daily in prayer
I thank my Maker
for all the ways
He has blessed
our lives.

Express Gratitude in song!
It’s such a good way to say Thank You!

“Do not be anxious about anything,
but in every situation, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.”
(Philippians 4:6)

Thank you for visiting JanBeek

How many ways do you say Thank You?

    Language affords us many ways, but if you observe animals which have no written language. How do they express it? A wet lick from your dog, a low soft purr from the cat. Having been in a job which I interacted with animals, they all instinctively have a way of saying it if you listen. You can say it by loyalty, compassion and lasting loving friendships. A nice warm lick on the cheek is nice sometimes and is shocking enough for the person to realize the message.

  2. Thank you Jan for bringing a bit of the Lord’s sunshine into my day. Indeed, we have so many blessings to be grateful for.

  3. One of my favorite ways is to make and send a Thank You card. This isn’t always for something a person has done. It may be to tell them that I am thanking God for bringing them into my life. It may be to tell them what a good example they are to me. I’d like to be able to make and send a thank you card to Jesus. For now, I’ll use prayer and praise. πŸ™‚
