Big shows and small consistancy

Last week the dedicated cook for the youth group was showered with flowers and chocolate since it was her final week helping out in the kitchen after six years.

In ministry there are a lot of chances to thank people. It's a consequence of working in an industry dependant upon volunteers.

I acknowledge that thanking others isn't one of my strengths. At least not in small ways.

I do BIG shows of appreciation rather well.

I've given out trophies and publicly expressed my gratitude in congregational meetings. But small, consistent, appreciativeness (is that a word?) is still something I'm working on.
