Day is a jewel Thanksgiving, to create in the hearts of honest men; but be cautious that you don’t take the day, and omit the gratitude. In thankfulness of center.

As we express our gratitude, we must forget that the best gratitude is not to utter words never, but to live by them. Remember God’s bounty in the entire year. String the pearls of His favour. Hide the dark parts, except so as they may be breaking out in light considerably! Day to thanks Give this one, to joy, to gratitude!

At whatever straws we must grasp, there’s always a time for gratitude and new origins. There is one day that is ours. There is 1 day when all we Americans who are not self-made get back to the old home to eat saleratus biscuits and marvel how much nearer to the porch the old pump looks than it used to. Day is the main one day that is purely American Thanksgiving.

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, which true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. We can only be said to be alive in those brief moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.

The heart will see the pathway home. Grace is not a little prayer you chant before receiving meals. It’s ways to live. Give thanks a lot for unknown blessings on their way already. To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.
