Thanksgiving 2012

“Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.”  Native American saying


“In seamless gratitude I weave

A silent, healing prayer,

With Shining threads of ceaseless joy;

For man is God’s great heir.” Violet Key Seymer


“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”  John Fitzgerald Kennedy

“If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “Thank you,” that would suffice.”  Meister Eckhart

“Our gratitude is riches,

Complaint is poverty,

Our trials bloom in blessings,

they test our constancy.”

Vivian Burnett


“Gratitude is much more than a verbal expression of thanks.  Action expresses more gratitude than speech.”  Mary Baker Eddy


“All that we behold is full of blessings.”  William Wordsworth


“Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.  And I knew that thou hearest me always:”  Christ Jesus
