As you celebrate this day of Thanksgiving, may you enter into the power of gratitude by experiencing first God’s gratitude for you – one who bear the image of your Creator.

“To be grateful is to recognize the love of God in everything He has given us—and He has given us everything…Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience.”

  – Thomas Merton in Thought in Solitude

And just because I can’t help it, here’s the fine looking group of trotters this morning!

Happy Thanksgiving friends,
