100+ words from “Thanksgiving”

Trial100+ 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
