Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
--W. T. PurkiserThank

Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends.
--Courtland Milloy

You say, 'If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.' You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.
--Charles Haddon Spurgeon

God every day when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know.
--Basil Carpenter

True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him.
--George R. Hendrick

Now thank we all our God, With hearts and hands and voices;
Who wondrous things hath done, In whom this world rejoices.
Who, from our mother's arms, Hath led us on our way,
With countless gifts of love, And still is ours today.
--Martin Rinkart

We will speed the day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing... Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I'm free at last.
--Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is 'thank you', that would suffice.
--Meister Eckhart

Olá Teresinha!
Há muito que não vinha aqui ao teu belo espaço, mas como diz o ditado "mais vale tarde do que nunca" aqui estou.
Gostei das belas imagens e dos "grandes" pensamentos que adicionaste.
Um beijinho muito doce,
