The Land of THANKFULNESS.......

Monday, November 25, 2013




The Land of THANKFULNESS



I live in the Land of Thankfulness ...
I love the Land of Thankfulness where blessings overflow;
I claim it as my native home, most charming land I know;
And if I've need of anything, no matter what it be,
I just give thanks with confidence and see it come to me;
I like to live in Thankfulness! Would live there all my days,
Would let its spirit stir my soul and fill my heart with praise;
I questioned once how I had found a place of such a kind,
Knew I'd discovered it because I'd thankful thoughts in mind;
Oh, come with me to Thankfulness! We ask this of you:
That you be always thankful, friend, this is all you do;
And if there's anything you need, no longer doubt or fear,
The thing you seek's awaiting you, it surely will appear.
2004 Frank B. Whitney





At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by
a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with
deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
~ Albert Schweitzer


Best of all is it to preserve everything in a pure, still heart, and let there
be for every pulse a thanksgiving, and for every breath a song.
~Konrad von Gesner


Feeling gratitude and not expressing it ...
is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
~ William Arthur Ward

Happy Thanksgiving - Inspiration Line
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.
~Melody Beattie


What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it ...
would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way.
In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer,
you must truly appreciate what you already have.
~Ralph Marston


Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone.
~Gladys Berthe Stern


Life without thankfulness is devoid of love and passion.
Hope without thankfulness is lacking in fine perception.
Faith without thankfulness lacks strength and fortitude.
Every virtue divorced from thankfulness
is maimed and limps along the spiritual road.
~John Henry Jowett






The hardest arithmetic to master
is that which enables us to count our blessings.
~Eric Hoffer


As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that
the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Thanksgiving - Inspiration Line
Make it a habit to tell people thank you ...
to express your appreciation, sincerely and without the
expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those
around you, and you'll soon find many others around you.
Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.
~ Ralph Marston


We can only be said to be alive in those moments
when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
~Thornton Wilder


Let's be grateful for those who give us happiness;
they are the charming gardeners who make our soul bloom.
~Marcel Proust


Real life isn't always going to be perfect or go our way,
but the recurring acknowledgment of what IS working in our lives
can help us not only to survive but surmount our difficulties.
~Sara Ban Breathnach


The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the
thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds
the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!
~Henry Ward Beecher


No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.
~ John Greenleaf Whittier

If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is,
"thank you," that would suffice.
