I think … a better thing than thanksgiving: thanks-living.
How is this to be done?
By a general cheerfulness of manner, by an obedience to the command of Him by whose mercy we live, by a perpetual, constant delighting of ourselves in the Lord, and by a submission of our desires to His will.
-Charles Spurgeon, 1834-1892
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Bought me with his precious blood.
-Robert Robinson, 1735-1790
