All I Can Do Is Say …

Show your thankfulness to God for His wisdom by getting some wisdom at Proverbial Thought.

My wife has been working on me since she has known me to be more thankful.

This simply means that after someone has offered to do something for me, has done something for me, has offered advice to me, has been friendly to me … really just about anything nice to or for me, I should say “Thank you!”

It is a struggle for me, because I am the kind of person who is satisfied to see a smile or a child run off with their new toy or hear a contented sigh to know that someone is thankful for my service, words, or thoughts.

I have to admit, however, that perhaps we see so many problems in our society because of a lack of thankfulness – between each other and to God.

That is the real rub of things.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Colossians 3:15, NIV

Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 5:18b-20, NIV

I particularly like the Mikeschair words it:

All I Can Do (Thank You)

I could write a love song
Tell you what I think you want to hear
But it  wouldn’t be good enough, no
Yeah, I could try so hard
To give it  everything I’ve got
But I’m not ever gonna measure up

(Chorus)
All I can do is thank you for this life I never deserved
Wanna thank you  for the grace I know I don’t have to earn
You love me, you love me, your  mercy is proof
All I can do is say thank you
All I can do is say thank  you

It would have been easy
But I’m glad you never walked away
Cause your love runs deep for me
And I see this beautiful world and it  brings tears to my eyes
And I think it’s beautiful to be free

(Chorus)
All I can do is thank you for this life I never deserved
Wanna thank you for the grace I know I don’t have to earn
You love me,  you love me, your mercy is proof
All I can do is say thank you
All I can  do is say thank you

For love, for hope, for all the ways
Yeah, for  everything you do
What else can I say but thank you
Thank you

I  could write a love song
Tell you what I think you wanna hear
But it  wouldn’t be good enough

(Chorus)
All I can do is thank you for this  life I never deserved
Wanna thank you for the grace I know I don’t have to  earn
You love me, you love me, your mercy is proof
All I can do is say  thank you
All I can do is say thank you

All I can do, all I can do,  all I can do is say thank you
(repeat)
