Thanksgiving Day is just a few days away. So for this week’s blog I’ve decided to share a few of my favorite seasonal quotes and Scripture verses about giving thanks.

“Gratitude is the rosemary of the heart.” ~ Minna Antrim (19th century American writer)

“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” ~ Henry David Thoreau (American author, poet, and naturalist)

“I’m thankful for every moment.” ~ Al Green (American singer)

“For what I have received may the Lord make me truly thankful. And more truly for what I have not received. ~ Storm Jameson (English novelist)

“Thanksgiving is a season that is very much in accord with the themes and teachings of Jesus Christ.” ~ John Clayton (ESPN sports reporter/writer)

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them” ~ John F. Kennedy (United States President)

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:18

“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!” ~  Psalm 150:6

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever. . . .” Psalm 136:1

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

  1. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
    Psalm 100: 4-5

  2. Thanks, Karen,
    One of my favorites is one I read a long time ago: ” Instead of thinking of the things you want but do not have, think of the things that you do NOT want and do Not HAVE!” I could make a long list !!> one that I thought of myself that I have held on to is: one day when I was vacuuming the house but did not WANT to and felt rather grumpy, I felt a God nudge and thought, “okay Margaret, change your attitude, express more gratitude. You have a house to vacuum, you have a good vacuum cleaner, you are healthy enough to do the work—-“. I was sharing this with the lady at our church who was in charge of the Widowed Unite group and she liked it so well she adopted the brief words for the motto of the group.
    I pray you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and all of us will be thankful for what we have and ask for blessings for those less fortunate.
    Love to you. Margaret

    P.S.you may receive this twice as the first time I sent it I got the message I had an incorrect email address?? computers? go figure!

  3. “Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.” II Corinthians 9:11
