While doing my devotions today I came across a poem, written by Wilfred Peterson, and thought I would share it with you here:
"The Art of Thanksgiving"
The art of thanksgiving is thanks-living.
It is gratitude in action.
It is thanking God for the gift of life
By living it triumphantly.
It is thanksing God for your talents and abilities
By accepting them as obligations to be
Investments for the common good.
It is thanking God for all that men and women
Have done for you by doing things for others.
It is thanking God for opportunities
By accepting them as a challenge to achievement.
It is thanking God for happiness
By striving to make others happy.
It is thanking God for inspiration
By trying to be an inspiration to others.
It is thanking God for health and strength
By the care and reverence you show your body.
It is thanking God for each new day
By living it to the fullest.
It is thanking God by giving
Hands, arms, legs, and voice to your thankful spirit
It is adding to your prayers of thanksgiving
Acts of thanks-living.
Did you enjoy this poem? It touched my heart and I hope it did yours as well.

You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough.
Many things have been opened by mistake, but none so frequently as the mouth.
A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.
