thankfulness

A Quote by Saint Dorotheos of Gaza on god, sacred, holy, wisdom, love, compassion, sadness, suffering, thankfulness, and reality

Therefore, we know about God that He loves and shows pity on His creatures, and also that He is the source of wisdom and knows how to govern everything concerning us.  Nothing is impossible for Him, but everything is subject to His will.  We must also realize that everything He does is for our benefit and we must accept it with thankfulness...as from a benefactor and a good lord even if is troublesome.  For everything is done with right judgment, and God, Who is merciful, does not overlook even the smallest sadness that we suffer.

A Quote by Grace Oursler on thankfulness, praise, god, and healing

Think about the difference between thankfulness and praise.  Thankfulness if us-centered; when things work out the way we want, we're thankful.  Praise is God-centered; praise means becoming aware of God in your life right now... praise is the beginning of healing.

A Quote by gwizazz on gwizazz, breathe deeper, breathe deeply often, deep breathing, breath-of-life, oxygen, pain, hurt, thankfulness, fault, cause, reminded, pre-exist, pre-existing, and pre-existence

Did you feel hurt by what he said? Probably.
Was it his 'fault' that you were hurt? No.
Was he the 'cause' of your hurt? No.
He simply 'reminded' you of your 'pre-existing' sensitivity.
Be thankful for people like him.
The reason for the hurt was the 'pre-existence' of physical tension.
Breath or oxygen can release the physical tension
which results from friction against nerve endings.
The deeper the breath, the better the outcome or result.
Breathe deeply often...

A Quote by William Blake on children, divinity, fatherhood, god, judaism, love, mercy, peace, pity, and thankfulness

To Mercy Pity Peace and Love All pray in their distress, And to these virtues of delight Return their thankfulness. For Mercy Pity Peace and Love Is God our father dear. And Mercy Pity Peace and Love Is Man his child and care. Then every man of every clime That prays in his distress Prays to the human form divine: Love Mercy Pity Peace. And all must love the human form In heathen, Turk, or Jew. Where Mercy, Love and Pity dwell There God is dwelling too.

William Blake (1757 - 1827)

A Quote by unknown on blessings, day, earth, god, heart, neighbors, and thankfulness

If one should give a neighbor a dish of sand and tell him there were particles of iron in it, he might feel for them with his finger in vain. But let the neighbor take a magnet and sweep through the sand, and the iron would be attracted to that magnet - particles, invisible to the eye a moment before, would be gathered by the magnet. The unthankful heart, like a finger in the sand, discovers no mercies. But let the thankful heart sweep through the day, and as the magnet finds the iron, so finds it every moment some blessings-only the iron in God's sand is more precious than anything on the earth.

A Quote by unknown on earth, gifts, gold, and thankfulness

Smoke hangs like haze over harvested fields, The gold of stubble, the brown of turned earth And you walk under the red light of fall The scent of fallen apples, the dust of threshed grain The sharp, gentle chill of fall. Here as we move into the shadows of autumn The night that brings the morning of spring Come to us, Lord of Harvest Teach us to be thankful for the gifts you bring us. . . .
