So, Why Should I Be Thankful?

25 Nov

From the Heart

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 lives, but are grateful for the abundance
that is present, we experience heaven on earth.”

Author unknown,
but is wise advice

    Positive instead of negative, thankful instead of complaining, loving instead of bitterness. You got it all in your poem, and your poem is beautiful and true. May the good Lord help and bless us all in this endeavor.
