Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. (William Arthur Ward, American author of inspirational maxims)

It’s Thanksgiving Day in the United States, and many families are expressing their thanks for God’s blessing in their homes and upon our country. In spite of difficulties and unrest, there is still much to be grateful for. But, as Ward suggests, thanksgiving doesn’t have to be only an annual celebration. What would life be like if we lived every day with an attitude of gratitude?

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
