Lord, We Are Thankful For All Favors You Send

Updated on November 10, 2011

Lord, We Are Thankful For All Favors You Sendd

Let us be thankful for small favors,

Not just the big ones that come along.

When you see a beautiful butterfly,

Of when you hear a little child's song.

When we hear a voice call out to us,

"My friend, how are you  doing today?"

Yes,we should be thankful to our God

For each small gift that comes our way.

To see a dear friend once in awhile 

Is better than not seeing them at all

To see a sweet face and a dear smile

This is better than having them call.

But having them  call is not too bad ,

If that is all of the time they could find.

Even though  they are in a distant town

You know you are  still on their mind.

So let us be thankful for small favors,

The ones God sends to us each day

Don't wait for favors that you can't miss,

Before you thank God when you pray.

If favors are so important to mankind,

We should try our best and be a part,

Of the giving of favors,a gift to our God.

A gift that comes right from our heart .!


****************************************************


So many  times we go to God and ask Him 

for a special request ,or a favor  , but how 

often do we give God a favor ? I know  He 

has everything  but if we were to offer  to 

help someone  that needed help  that is

helping God. Didn't He say if you visited 

in prison or even gave a cup of cold water

you was doing it to Him.At times I guess we 

are to be His hands and feet, there are  

ways we could help or give God favors , if 

we would just give it a little thought. I am

sure we see people every day that  could

use a helping hand sometimes,just small 

favors that would really help someone.

      Yes, I too am thankful for all blessings or favors both

      large and small. Good comments on You Tube for our Music on You Tube is a blessing. When my Grandchildren hug me and say, "I love you Grandma," that is a blessing. One little Grandgirl said, "Grandma, you are my best Grandma," and that made my day so special. Little Children are honest and innocent and we can tell exactly what they think and feel and that too is a blessing. Children and Grandchildren are blessings from God. Tessie

      Hey Clara, I am proud to tell you that I am thankful for the small things. I had a good friend once (now deceased) who was living on SS, and had only the necessities of life. But she was happy. She loved to give. One day she gave me a delicate book mark made of gold. I see it and use it everyday. One of my favorite gifts. Small but wonderful.

      Clara, look up to the right of this hub. There is a white search box. I want you to write in: Dave Matthews. Search for him on Hub Pages. He is someone who would enjoy your hubs. A very religious man. A good lead for you to follow.
