- Inside Cover - "Let Us
Thank God" was created especially for Regina Smith at the age of
8, with love from Mom and Dad, December 25, 2001.

- Page 3- Hi Regina.
My name is Gabriel. Mom and Dad asked me to present this book to you
Atlanta, so that you can learn some of the reasons why we give thanks to
- Page 4 - The first gift God
gave you was life. You were a gift of God to your parents. They
love you no matter what. Their love and protection are two more of God's
gifts. Because there is life, let us thank God.

- Page 7 - At sunset, God
paints the sky in brilliant colors, and He does it again at sunrise.
Regina, did you know that God uses every color when He makes a rainbow?
Because we can see, let us thank God.
- Page 8 - God gave you ears
to hear. Sounds, like singing birds, meowing cats, buzzing bees, beeping
horns, musical instruments, ringing bells, and much more, are all around us.
Because we can hear, let us thank God.

- Page 10- More illustrations
- Page 11 - God gave you a
nose to smell with. Some smells, like flowers and chocolate chip cookies
baking in the oven, are nice. Other smells, like Regina's dirty
socks and spray of skunk, are not so nice. PU. Because we can
smell, let us thank God.
- Page 12 - God gave you a
tongue to taste with. There are many different kinds of things to taste,
like smooth chocolate candy bars, sour lemons, tangy oranges, and salty
popcorn. Do you like ice cream, Regina? Your tongue comes
in handy when you have an ice cream cone to lick. If you didn't have a
tongue, you couldn't talk, sing, or shout! Because we can taste, let us

- Page 15 - God gave you hands
to feel with. Everything around you, like the rough surface of a stone,
the softness of a feather, and the smoothness of your favorite slide, has a
different feeling. Feeling can also tell you if something is hot, like
your mashed potatoes, or cold, like your popsicle. Because we can touch,
let us thank God.
- Page 16- God gave you
animals to share your world. He made useful farm animals like horses,
cows, pigs, sheep, and chickens. He made wild animals that live in green
forests, rolling fields, hot deserts, and lands of frozen ice. God
filled the air with many kinds of birds, and he filled the water with fish and
lots of other fascinating creatures. But God didn't stop there,

- Page 18 - More illustrations
- Page 19 - God made some
animals as special friends. We call them pets. A pet could be a
dog, cat, hamster, or guinea pig. Some people keep exotic pets, like
snakes, turtles, ferrets, and iguanas. Because we have pets, let us
- Page 20 - God gave you
friends to play with, Regina. You can have lots of fun times with
your friends. But even friends are not perfect. Sometimes you
might disagree and even get angry with each other. God gave us another
wonderful gift of forgiveness. Because you have friends like Lisa
and Denisea, let us thank God.

- Page 23- God filled the
world with other people too; the mailman delivers the mail addressed to
Regina, and the farmer grows the food you eat. God gave some people
the gift of helping others; the police, the fire fighters, and rescue people
work to keep you safe. God also gave you doctors and nurses to take care
of you when you are sick. Because we have people who care for you, let
us thank God.
- Page 24- God gave us places
to worship with others and to learn about Him. There are teachers there
who help you learn how to talk to God. This is called prayer.
Because we have prayer., let us thank God.

- Page 27 - Sometimes bad
things happen that hurt us; for example, if you stub your toe, it's okay to
cry, Regina. God has also given us choices and the will to make
them. He has given us a set of rules to follow. They are the Ten
Commandments. Regina, he made you smart enough to know right from
wrong. Because we have the strength to choose right over wrong, let us
- Page 28 - God has given you
many gifts, Regina. All of them together cannot compare with His
greatest of all. God gave you the gift of eternal life. Even when
your body is gone, you will live on in spirit with God. All God asks of
you is to believe in Him.
