Today and everyday, let your heart be filled with gratitude for the power and presence of God “who daily loadeth us with benefits.” (Ps 68:19) For “this is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Ps 118:24) Indeed!
Enjoy this poem by Ethel Wasgatt Dennis
A grateful heart a garden is,
Where there is always room
For every lovely, Godlike grace
To come to perfect bloom.
A grateful heart a fortress is,
A staunch and rugged tower,
Where God’s omnipotence, revealed,
Girds man with mighty power.
A grateful heart a temple is,
A shrine so pure and white,
Where angels of His presence keep
Calm watch by day or night.
Grant then, dear Father-Mother, God,
Whatever else befall,
This largess of a grateful heart
That loves and blesses all.
