Gratitude and happiness that's secure

The two go hand in hand. But our gratitude needs to find its roots in God.

I Had a very special Thanksgiving last year. The traditional meal my family had on the appointed Thursday was a happy event. But another thanksgiving occurred several weeks earlier and involved my awakening to a true feeling of gratitude. The joy I suddenly felt one day was like the sudden sprouting of a seed. My seed had required months of quiet nurturing before it could push above the surface of the soil. But when it finally appeared, what a sturdy shoot it proved to be!

My thanksgiving experience began when a friend noticed a Bible verse I had copied and taped inside the cover of my school notebook. The verse reads, "Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation." Ps. 68:19.
