Our Family at Crocodile Rock

Saying thank you is an outward expression of an inward feeling of gratitude.  It recognises that another person has helped you.    Even though saying thank you is one of the first manners our parents taught us we still often forget to say it to the people in our daily life, maybe we get too familiar with their involvement in our life…. But no excuse really – we need to express our thanks.

Peter – thank you for encouraging me to be me in so many facets of our life.

Joshua – thank you for constantly making me think deeper about the things of this world in connection with the truth of God’s word.

Jessica – thank you for always looking out for me and being available to help me in those areas where I am weak.

Naomi – thank you for bringing laughter into our home – for always being on the lookout for ways to make life fun.

Daniel – thank you Daniel for your heart to do the right thing and for putting things right when you don’t.

Saying thank you guards against a sense of independence, a subtle feeling we can have where we falsely think  we can do life on our own.  God placed us in a family because we need others in our life.  Therefore, we need to give thanks to God and to each other daily as we recognise that blessing.
