A HEART OF THANKS
I’m learning to live with a heart of Thanksgiving
Not just a thank you here and there
Not just when skies are lovely and fair
Not just when the sun comes out to play
I’m learning in all things, in all ways,
To live with a heart of Thanksliving each day.
No matter the time, no matter the place,
If life is a mess and too much in the way,
There’s always a reason, always can I say
God, thank You for this miraculous day.
Thanksliving is daily seeking the good
A time to pause and sit with the Lord
Brings joy to the weary, troubled soul
A heart of Thanksgiving brings a greater Thanksliving.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
On an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
