Best Thanksgiving 2011 Quotes, Prayers, Graces
Many of you will be involved in preparations for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Day and we hope that you’ll be celebrating the day with family and friends and remembering everything that makes it a wonderful occasion. We’ve already given you some Thankgiving recipe selections and to accompany that we thought we’d round up some of the best Thanksgiving 2011 quotations, prayers and graces.
Just hit on any of the following links to be taken straight to the site concerned. One of the best quotation sites is quotegarden.com with dozens of happy Thanksgiving quotes, at least a few of which are bound to be suitable for your occasion. One of our favorites is this from E.P. Powell ‘Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.’ Another from Thornton Wilder reads, ‘We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.’
Another good source for gratitude and Thanksgiving quote is tentmaker.org. We liked this from William A. Ward, ‘God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?”’ Or these profound words from Melody Beattie, ‘Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.’
Meanwhile if you want something a little different huffingtonpost.com has a selection of funny thanksgiving quotes from various comedians. This one struck us as being particularly apt, from Stephen Colbert. ‘Thanksgiving is a magical time of year when families across the country join together to raise America’s obesity statistics. Personally, I love Thanksgiving traditions: watching football, making pumpkin pie, and saying the magic phrase that sends your aunt storming out of the dining room to sit in her car.’
Poemsource.com has a good selection of Thanksgiving prayers, Thanksgiving graces and also poems. There are blessings, and special Thanksgiving prayers especially for kids. Among the variety available are ‘Another Good Year,’ ‘We Are Thankful,’ and ‘Countless Blessings.’
Finally prayer-and-prayers.info has an enormous selection of Thanksgiving Day prayers. There’s a Thanksgiving Day Grace, Thanksgiving Mealtime Blessing, Thanksgiving Dinner Prayer, a Family Thanksgiving Day Prayer, Act of Thanksgiving for Blessings of the Past Year and much more so take a look and you’re sure to find exactly what you need. There’s also a good selection of Thanksgiving Poems on this site.
Hopefully you’ll find exactly the quotes, prayers and graces that you’ll enjoy sharing with those you care about the most. You may also be interested in our Thanksgiving printables activities for kids article. All it remains for us to say is Happy Thanksgiving!
