Gratitude on Veteran's Day

Trying to be grateful today for more than just a day off!

When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs? ~G.K. Chesterton

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you. ~John E. Southard

Thou hast given so much to me, Give one thing more, - a grateful heart; Not
thankful when it pleaseth me, As if Thy blessings had spare days, But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.~George Herbert

Gratitude changes the pangs of memory into a tranquil joy. ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ~William Arthur Ward

1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
