A truly worthy thought! Thank you, Maureen!
“Thankful thoughts are well deserving your high encouragement. Get a cage full of these birds of paradise, and let them fly about in the groves of your soul, and sing there at all times. There is no better companion than cheerful gratitude. If a man can but see the mercy of God in everything, instead of looking always at the black side of the picture, he will be happy indeed. The fruit of thankful thoughts will be summer in his soul, even when the winds of winter rage outside. Cultivate thankful thoughts as you cultivate sweet flowers in your garden.” –Charles Spurgeon “Sermons” Vol. 9 p. 170
