FOOD FOR THOUGHT

ON GRATITUDE:

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?"
~William A. Ward

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. ~G.K. Chesterton

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

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

If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily.
~Gerald Good

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

When eating bamboo sprouts, remember the man who planted them. ~Chinese Proverb

Have you ever tried giving a nothing but thanks prayer for longer than just a minute? You should try it some time. It's an awesome experience. :) Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, Nicole. I did that once and it was very humbling. Sometimes when I'm having a hard time falling asleep, I try to thing of one thing I'm grateful for for each letter of the alphabet. It calms me down and I usually fall asleep by the letter "T."
