There Are Many Ways To Give Thanks


I was thinking over the past couple of days that there Are Many Ways To Give Thanks

I don’t think there are as many ways to say, “You are welcome.”

Maybe that is why God fixed things in a way that we don’t normally hear him reply to things we say to Him.

It would be very hard to say “You are Welcome” and be original in content each time someone gave thanks to You – especially on Thanksgiving. There are just so many ways you can say “You are welcome”; “My pleasure”; “No, no! thank you!”; “Think nothing of it.”; "Ah, forget it!" and “No problem!”

Now, you perceive His silence as a Holy You Are Welcome with a certain mystic and maybe that is the way it should be.

I read that one should not say, "No Problem," because that could indicate that you anticipate a problem in the future.

Interesting that subsequent generations have not found suitable replacements for the phrases from great-grandfather's day. Graciousness still requires the same old words.

A belated Happy Thanksgiving -- I've been away.
