WHAT a fullness of rejoicing the word "thanksgiving" elicits! As we remember the good that has come to us in every day of our lives, thought naturally turns to the great Giver of all good and the unchanging, tender love and care of our Father-Mother God, who is the source of all our blessings. We could not be satisfied with mere pleasure in the possession of the things we have, any more than a child who had many gifts could fully enjoy them without a grateful recognition of the love which had prompted the giving. Our gratitude to God completes our happiness.

And how our cup is running over with spiritual abundance! How much more appreciation of good we have, how much more gratitude, love, intelligence, courage, joy than ever before! We are realizing more and more the capacity to love which God has given us—to love God, to love all His children, to love everything that His goodness, and to love so completely we are accepting the joy belongs to the sons of God. "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be us, that we should be called the sons of God."
