Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.  ~Izaak Walton
