Even in the most peaceful surroundings,
the angry heart finds quarrel.
Even in the most quarrelsome surroundings,
the grateful heart finds peace.
Let us be thankful, then because
we receive a kingdom that cannot be shaken.
Let us be grateful and worship God in a
way that will please Him, with respect and awe.

The more we grow in our experience of God's grace,
the more we discover that thanksgiving
isn't simply something we say to God,
but a way of living each day.
I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving
and call on the name of the Lord.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order,
confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving;
go into His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him and praise His name.

Give thanks for sorrow that teaches you pity;
for pain that teaches you courage --
and give exceeding thanks for the mystery
which remains a mystery still -
the veil that hides you from the infinite,
which makes it possible for you to
believe in what you cannot see.
In everything give thanks:
for this is the will of God in Jesus Christ concerning you.
-1 Thessalonians 5:18

Sometimes our light goes out, but
is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those
who have rekindled this light.
Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your Name:
The upright shall dwell in Your presence.
