Opening the Gate of Thanksgiving

gate openSaying thank you is like standing near the garden of provision and calling out words of thanks to the Gardener over the garden gate.

Offering thanksgiving is when we open the gate and enter the garden.  We
linger over the beauty of each flower that He tended to, and we savour the fragrance
of His faithful provision and grace.  We sit and visit with the Gardener.

Thanksgiving and gratitude activates the heart to kneel before the Gardener,and initiates a divine exchange where our pride and self-sufficiency
is increasingly replaced by a spirit of total   dependency on the Him for all things.
