Gift #505: Giving Thanks

Gratitude is from the same root word as “grace”…
Thanksgiving is from the same root word as “think,”
so that to think is to thank. 
      – Willis P. King (1839-1909)

This is my favorite verse from Giving Thanks, and I thought it was most appropriate for today.  Thanksgiving…to think grace….this is the joy of the spirit.  To live grace… this is true thanksgiving.  Our circumstances may change – we may be filled or hungry, we may be surrounded by loved ones or alone, healthy or sick, but one thing always remains constant.  Grace always surrounds us, grace falls down on us from God’s hands, and we are loved by Him.  That is all we ever need and it is everything to be thankful for.

Blessed Thanksgiving wishes to you,

Sarah
