G is for Gratitude

Although we should be grateful for our blessings throughout the year, November is a month we purposefully reflect on God's blessings.

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night

For health and food, for love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  8. Wonderful thoughts. My sister Joni at Red Couch Recipes has challenged everyone to add a little gratitude spot at the end of each post this month. Yours reminds me that my post today was missing that. Oops, better go and edit before she gets after me.

  18. As the sky darkens earlier and we're cosy by our warm fire, it's good to reflect on all the things for which we are grateful.

  19. What a gracious and lovely stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "G".

    This was a wonderful quote and a perfect picture.

    Tony the Tiger would say "It's GGGGGGRRRReat!"

    But I just say, thank you for linking.
