It is literally true, as the thankless say,
that they have nothing to be thankful for.
He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire,
is just as if he had no fire.
Nothing is possessed save in appreciation,
of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient.
But a thankful heart hath a continual feast.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good…
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
