100+ words out of the one word thanksgiving. If you take the letters of this word and scramble them up, you can create some great omelets. It's just so much fun. From Star Wars to Astronaut drinks, from intelligence to annoyance, I'm so thankful for the words that come from thanksgiving.
Words like giving and thanks are obvious. But think of all the others (favorites in orange):
THINK(s) THANK(s) HANG(s) TANG GNAT(s) KING(s) GANG(s) SING(s) SINGING HANGING SKIING THAN THIN SNAG THING(s) THANG NAG(s) KIN TIKI STINK(ing) THANKING THINKING HANK(s) GAIN(s) GIN SANG SITH IT AT IS AS GIST GAS ITS ANT(s) TAN(s) SHIN GASH SHIV SHANK KIT(s) HIT(s) (a couple of bad words omitted) HAT(s) SAINT SKIT ANGST TAKING VAN(s) VIN SKIN HINT(s) STING(ing) HINTING ASK(ing) TASK(ing) AH(s) SIN IN AN GIG(s) INN(s) ANN(s) GAG(s) TAG(s) TANK(s) STAN STAG STAGING AGING GIGI GIST TAG(s) SKI
The Bible speaks often about the words that derive from thanksgiving. An "attitude of gratitude", as a I say with my 5-yr-old daughter (it's quite cute when she says it), causes us to erupt in thankful expressions. For instance, in 1 Chronicles 16:8-36, David overflows with thanksgiving to God… which creates in him a litany of other words too:
SING(s) PRAISE(s) TELL(s) MIRACLE(s) GENERATIONS GLORY ACTS WONDERFUL NAME KNOWN NATIONS CALL GOOD JOY REJOICE(s) REMEMBER(s) SEEK FACE THE-LORD YAHWEH STRENGTH DWELLING DECLARE(s) ASCRIBE(s) RESOUND SPLENDOR HOLINESS PORTION OFFER(s) TREMBLE(s) HEAVENS SALVATION EVERLASTING PEOPLE SAY AMEN
