A grateful heart

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

On Thanksgiving Day we acknowledge our dependence.
~William Jennings Bryan

[Happy Thanksgiving! This photo was taken last weekend at Fort Watauga at Sycamore Shoals Park in Elizabethton, TN where they reenacted a 18th century Thanksgiving meal.]
