Potent Quotable, Thanksgiving and Gratitude

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

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

No one is entitled to anything. We must appreciate every opportunity we get in life. Being humble and thankful goes a long way.
Unknown quotes

If you can’t be content with what you have received, be thankful for what you have escaped.
— Author Unknown

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.
— Rabbi Harold Kushner

It is impossible to feel grateful and depressed in the same moment.
— Naomi Williams

None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy.
— Fred De Witt Van Amburgh

You won’t be happy with more until you’re happy with what you’ve got.
— Viki King

So often we dwell on the things that seem impossible rather than on the things that are possible. So often we are depressed by what remains to be done and forget to be thankful for all that has been done.
— Marian Wright Edelman

The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings.
— Henry Ward Beecher

    Grateful is a word running through these quotes. Gratitude is another. Hope to practice these words this week as I am thankful to God for what He has given me.

    I especially like #2 and #5 — There is so much in life to be grateful for and the only place to say “Thank You” is in prayer.

    There are also those people to whom we owe our thanks because they touch our lives with good things — that would include yourself. So — Thank You for your wonderful blob.
