So, Why Should I be Thankful

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

Louise Gibson



A thankful heart causes us to look upward.
It causes us to look around,
and causes us to look within
where the peace of God is found.


The number one secret to happiness
is a grateful heart.
Beginning our day with a prayer of gratitude
brings tranquility from the start.


Fear is the father of failure-
a negative emotion, to be sure.
Replace it with a positive thought.
Failure you will no longer endure.


“When we choose not to focus on
what is missing from our life,
but are grateful for the abundance that
is present, we experience Heaven on earth.”

    It is so easy to busy that we forget to be thankful.

      Thank you, Holly. You are one of the reasons I enjoy writing poetry. Communicating is helpful to everyone,,,and so enlightening. Life doesn’t always go the way we would like, but when I stop to count my blessings I can see God’s hand in everything.
