Thoughts on being Thankful

Thanksgiving is a time when the world gets to see just how blessed and how workable the Christian system is. The emphasis is not on giving or buying, but on being thankful and expressing that appreciation to God and to one another. -John Clayton

Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone. ~G.B. Stern

Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live. ~Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear

It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart. -Unknown

The thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings. -Henry Ward Beecher

If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily. ~Gerald Good

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Psalms 105:1

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34

Mary Mary and Kirk Franklin - Thank You

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
