THANKFUL? Expression of "gratitude" and "relief"; awareness of a 'good' benefit. How many times are we at a loss of words when someone asks us to give THANKS? Isn't THANKFULNESS the SPIRITUAL awareness of GOOD and BAD? Gratitude and Peace with the GOOD that lets people respond and relate to GOD; and the BAD that also lets people also relate to GOD. Perhaps THANKFULNESS is "the absence of not wanting to trade places with anyone else, not Kings or Presidents". Just "basking" in the Mercy of GOD, "and let the Peace of CHRIST rule in your hearts", (Colossians 3:15). Be Thankful, for the Mercy of GOD bringing people into our lives who love us and whom we Love UNCONDITIONALLY.
