Last Sunday, we had a guest preacher. His name is the Rev. H. Robert Samuels. His sermon title was "The Fine Art of Thanks Giving."
He used the phrase "Thanks giving is an attitude of gratitude."
I really liked that thought and quickly wrote it down, knowing if I didn't I'd probably forget it before the last coin was tossed in the offering plate.
He gave examples of how growing up, his parents stressed the importance of saying "Thank you" when he received gifts, in the form of a "Thank you" letter or note.
