"To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything he has given us-- and he has given us everything. Every breath that we draw is a gift of his love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from him.”
Thomas Merton

"Let your hearts overflow with thankfulness.”
The Apostle Paul in Colossians 2:7 NEB

“Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks...”
The Apostle Paul in I Thessalonians 5:17-18 KJV

"You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.”
Writer G. K. Chesterton

"Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me."
Jesus in John 11:41-42, NIV

"Gratitude is heaven itself."
Poet William Blake
