give thanks...

"We ought to give thanks for all fortune: if it is 'good', because is it good, if 'bad' because it works in us patience, humility, and the contempt of this world and the hope of our eternal country." C.S. Lewis

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
for tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
for song of bird, and hum of bee;
for all the things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Some people complain because God put thorns on roses,
while others praise Him for putting roses among thorns."

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful unto Him and bless His name. For the Lord is good...."
Psalm 100:4-5a

"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

"We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction." Harry A. Ironside

"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 H. Spurgeon
