Happy Thanksgiving! May your heart be full of peace and warmth today!
We’re enjoying a day with wonderful friends, our precious goddaughters, delicious food, and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade on TV. Outside there’s a beautiful blanket of fresh Connecticut snow–the first snowy Thanksgiving that I’ve seen in over a decade. My heart is full of joy for all of these blessings today.
In honor of Thanksgiving, here are some quotes about gratitude:
“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”
― W.T. Purkiser
“Thankfulness creates gratitude which generates contentment that causes peace.”
― Todd Stocker
“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite – only a sense of existence. . . . O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.”
― Henry David Thoreau
“Eucharisteo—thanksgiving—always precedes the miracle.”
― Ann Voskamp
