We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
All that we behold is full of blessings. ~William Wordsworth
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name!
~ King David, Psalm 100:4
