Forever Grateful


Because we’ve each received the gift that makes all other gifts possible – our very existence – may we adopt the persistent and unshakeable habit of offering thanks every day for as long as we live.

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”
~Marcus Tullius Cicero

“When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.” ~Tecumseh

“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.”
~Maya Angelou

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.”
~Meister Eckhart

“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.”
~Kahlil Gibran

“If I do not feel a sense of joy in God’s creation, if I forget to offer the world back to God with thankfulness…I have not yet learnt to be truly human. For it is only through thanksgiving that I can become myself.”

~Kallistos Ware
