"Gratitude bestows reverence. . ."
"Eucharisteo (thanksgiving) . . .opening the eyes wider, the heart deeper. . .giving thanks for what is, creates an appetite for more - not for more things, but for seeking more of God to give Him more glory."
(looking for the "thanksgivings" is looking for love and giving it back)
May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving holiday!
