Thank you so much.
I love you.
You did a wonderful job.
You help me more than I can say.
I don’t know what I would do without you.
You amaze me.
You make me smile.
I trust you completely.
Words such as these — followed up with words that communicate the specific blessings you are appreciating — give your family an environment of praise and gratitude.
Ahhh . . . . That environment feels like a crisp, cool morning with a gentle, refreshing breeze.
My heart’s desire is for my family to live in a refreshing environment so that they feel like Paul felt about Philemon:
For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love,
because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, brother.
