Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul. (Harry Ward Beecher, 19th century clergyman)

It’s uplifting to be around grateful people, people who don’t hesitate to say “Thank You,” and always seem to appreciate the kindness of others. On the other hand, ungrateful companions can really be a downer. So, develop an attitude of gratitude and try always to be thankful. It will make you nicer and encourage those around you.

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful (Colossians 4:2).
