Thursday Reflection
“What is God calling me to do?”
November 15, 2018
Since we are approaching Thanksgiving, I thought I would have some fun with you? Can you match the following quotes that touch upon being thankful with the author of that quote?
The Answers
True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach.     SENECA
Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.   MAYA ANGELOU
If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.
True forgiveness is when you can say, “Thank you for that experience”.   OPRAH WINFREY
We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives                                JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY
