Giving Thanks…

“ The Family at Prayer” by Haddon Sundblom

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

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

The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.
~ H.U. Westermayer

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.
~ Henry Ward Beecher

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
~ W.T. Purkiser

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God...
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (King James Version)
