“There is a calmness to a life lived in thankfulness, a quiet joy.”
— Ralph H. Blum

Because... Sometimes...


We get things out of sync... when we get too busy or too pressured. We loose the vision of all that the Lord has given us and then we wonder why we are unhappy. Even just doing the  dishes can be a lot of fun if you are grateful for what you have.


But If You're Not... Then The Same Job

Can Just Make You Miserable

Happiness Depends On Your Heart

thankfulness quote, gratitude quote, happy people


“Thou that has 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



It's A Characteristic You Want
To Cultivate... Because...

gratitude quote, thankfulness


“You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.” 

G. K. Chesterton




Perspective Is Everything!!!

“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

“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live. ”
— Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear




Do you "Have" to go to work... or do you "Get" to go to work. You can complain about anything or you can be grateful for EVERYTHING... and if you are grateful then it's a joy. 


thankfulness quote, gratitude quote, see things as they are


“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.” –Sarah Ban Breathnach


thankfulness, gratitude, quote, appreciation, rejoice


“Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting.”

“If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.”

Harold Kushner

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “Thank You?”   

William A. Ward




“Reflect upon your present blessings,

of which every man has plenty;

not on your past misfortunes...

of which all men have some.”

Charles Dickens




 “Gratitude is a vaccine, an antitoxin, and an antiseptic.”
— John Henry Jowett

Thankfulness


Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.

Thankfulness... can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.
