Merry Monday: Some reflection.

As we are approaching Thanksgiving and starting to plan our gatherings and menus, I thought a bit of reflection on happiness, gratitude, and contentment would be a nice break from the hustle and bustle, and a good reminder for all of us (especially if you’re starting to feel the holiday stress like I am).

Have a very Merry Monday!

Gratitude is our most direct line to God and the angels. If we take the time, no matter how crazy and troubled we feel, we can find something to be thankful for.

[Terry Lynn Taylor]

Discontent will destroy your peace, rob you of joy, make you miserable, spoil your witness. We dishonor God if we proclaim a Savior who satisfies and then go around discontent.

[Dr. Richard A. Swenson – Margin]

Let us sing hallelujah by anticipation.

[C.H. Spurgeon]

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many, not on your past misfortunes of while all men have some.

[Charles Dickens]

Happiness is a place between too little and too much.

[Finnish proverb]

Thou that hast given so much to me, Give one thing more, a grateful heart.

[George Herbert – 17th century poet]

Many persons have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

[Helen Keller]

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

[William Arthur Ward]

People who give will never be poor.

[Anne Frank]

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

[Herm Albright]
