Media @ New Hope CalgarySeeing God through gratitude. Does being thankful for something help us better know and experience God? How?

“To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything he has given us-- and he has given us everything. Every breath that we draw is a gift of his love, every moment of existence is a grace,
for it brings with it immense graces from him.”
Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude, p42

“I was born a child of grace… Nothing else about the place
Everything was ugly but your beautiful face…
It left me no illusion.
I saw you in the curve of the moon,
In the shadow cast across my room
You heard me in my tune…
When I just heard confusion
All because of you…
All because of you…
All because of you
I am…I am… I am”
U2, All Because of You, How to Dismantle and Atomic Bomb

“Let your hearts overflow with thankfulness.”
The Apostle Paul in Colossians 2:7 NEB

“Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks...”
The Apostle Paul in I Thessalonians 5:17-18 KJV

“You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.”
Writer G. K. Chesterton
