Thanksgiving Thoughts to Prepare Your Heart 

...all which we behold
Is full of blessings...
William Wordsworth

What do you behold today? Whom do you behold?

Thou hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, — a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
—George Herbert

O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.
—William Shakespeare

God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.

—Izaak Walton

 

Is yours a meek and thankful heart?

 

Let us remember that, as much has been given us,

much will be expected from us,

and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips,

and shows itself in deeds.

—Theodore Roosevelt

How do you use your blessings? 

Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received.

Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling.

Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.

—Henry Van Dyke

 

We Heart Matters gals pray that you will find plenty of reasons to give thanks to God

this Thanksgiving,

 

LuAnn, Heidi and Julie
