Giving thanks.

I am in Nashville with many alumni of the Re'generation.  As Pastor Derric closed out our meeting tonight, he told the sorry of the time he found his then four-year-old daughter, Jaycee, praying. He knelt to pray with her, folded his hands, and listened as she said, "Dear Jesus. Thank you. Amen.".

He lifted his head and looked at her. "Is that all?"

"That's enough," she said, standing.

And isn't it?  We are to give thanks in all things, in times good and bad, lean and lush, easy and hard.  In all things.

Dear Jesus. Thank you.  Amen.

That IS enough.
