Thanksgiving Thoughts

Happy Thanksgiving from our house to yours as we join our hearts in gratitude to the Giver of every good and perfect gift! (James 1:17)

Some thoughts on thankfulness from my commonplace…

The fineness which a hymn or psalm affords

Is, when the soul unto the lines accords.  ~Herbert

Do not let your head run upon that which is none of your own, but pick out some of the best of your circumstances, and consider how eagerly you would wish for them, were they not in your possession.  ~Marcus Aurelius

Be thankful for the least gift, so shalt thou be meet to receive greater.  ~Thomas à Kempis
