Be thankful onto God for all things


Be thankful onto God for all things and for all things give thanks onto God.

In every joyful day there will be a little sadness and even in the day of greatest sadness there will be a little ray of sunshine and joy.

He who grumbles and complains will fail to give thanks even on the most joyful day because of the wee bit of sadness; but he who has a thankful and grateful heart even in the days of sadness will give thanks because of the little ray of sunshine and joy.

Although optimism is not faith; it is akin to it.

Though pessimism is not the same thing as doubt; it is a close cousin to it.

Rarely do optimistic people fail to give thanks; but pessimistic people rarely ever do.

Let us then look for the good in everything and in everything give thanks.
