Christian gratitude without thorns there would be no roses

Some people are always grumbling that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.

Recently in New York City the family was waiting on a table and I decided to take a stroll around the block. And I walked into a Church Services! A Pastor, Pastor Boyd of Trinity Baptist Church was preaching on gratitude and he said that about roses and thorns. And he passed out a little orange sheet and said, “What are you thankful for?”
It was a real rich service about Thanksgiving.

The Bible talks about thanksgiving everywhere, like Psalm 92 “IT is good to give thanks to the Lord” What are you thankful for. Jot it down somewhere. Share it with your family and Thank God! Because without those thorns there could be no roses. Christian gratitude presses through the thorns to find the rose of God’s Glory.
