Our knowledge of God is perfected by gratitude: we are thankful and rejoice in the experience of the truth that He is love.

Thanksgiving to all, thanksgiving for all

“You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.”

— G.K. Chesterton (h/t

Chesterton has the right idea. I have much to be thankful for, even in lean times. May the same be true for you.
