Thanksgiving 2008

"The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!"
Henry Ward Beecher
"Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live. "
Jackie Windspear
Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.
Estonian Proverb

“You say, 'If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.' You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?"
William A. Ward
"O Lord that lends me life, Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness!"
William Shakespeare

"Gratitude consists of being more aware of what you have, than what you don’t."
Unknown
Only a stomach that rarely feels hungry scorns common things.
Horace

"We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude."
Cynthia Ozick

"Gratitude consists of being more aware of what you have, than what you don't."
Unknown

"Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the grateful and appreciating heart."
Henry Clay

"How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negative—or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people."
Sir John Templeton
