When I think about gratitude, I immediately think of Psalms 100 which we memorized (and had to write with correct punctuation and spelling!) in fifth grade. When I pulled it up, I was surprised to see that it's only five short verses. Somehow, it seemed much longer when I was a fifth grader memorizing it for Mrs. Nelms.
As I read through the words, I was reminded that joyful praise is the hallmark of thankful heart.
I pause to think of beautiful things I've enjoyed recently:
For the beauty of the moon,
For the beauty of the leaf,
For the love of grandsons dear
Over and around us lies.
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.
It might be fun to take a few moments to list some beauties that you enjoy in your own hymn of praise.
