It's all about tradition for Thanksgiving, and while many families
have their own traditional foods for the holiday,
others enjoy something new and modern being introduced.
Gia Scott, A Home Style Thanksgiving
"Nevertheless, the highest form of thanksgiving is when we
express gratitude for things that are not pleasant;
and for things that are difficult to identify as blessings.
It is often an act of faith to believe and trust the intentions of
God for allowing us to go through such experiences."
Joseph A Iyongo, Thanksgiving: Recipe for Blessed Living
"Sometime we feel that if everything isn't perfect,
we cannot be grateful for anything.
We easily fall into all-or-nothing thinking.
When we do, we miss the sunrise and the
other forms of goodness that surround us."
Anne Wilson Schaef Good |
"We need to contemplate the truth of our past
(and, perhaps, present) mistakes, while receiving heaps of God's love,
allowing that contrast to birth thankfulness in our hearts that rises in
worship to our Savior."

"When a child gives you a gift, even if it is a rock they just picked up,
It might be the only thing they have to give and they have chosen
to give it to you."
"If anyone would tell you the shortest, surest way to happiness and
all perfection, he must tell you to make it a rule to yourself to thank and
praise God for everything that happens to you."
William Law Happiness |
"So once in every year we throng upon a day apart,
to praise the Lord with feast and song in thankfulness of heart."
Arthur Guiterman Music |

"Make a prayer acknowledging yourself as a vehicle of light, giving thanks

Dhyani Ywahoo Being Happy |
"For flowers that bloom about our feet;
for tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
for song of bird, and hum of bee;
for all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!"
Ralph Waldo Emerson Famous |
"Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is Godís
will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."
