A Thankful Heart is a Happy Heart

Yahweh has been reminding me of the beauty and importance of a thankful heart.

The other day I saw this quote on Pinterest:

What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?

Ouch. That one got the point across to me.

And then there’s also the VeggieTales song that I’ve been singing with the little girl I babysit. And although it’s a simple song from my childhood, it holds so much timeless truth:

I thank God for this day,
For the sun in the sky,
For my mom and my dad,
For my piece of apple pie!
For our home on the ground,
For His love that’s all around,
That’s why I say thanks every day!
Because a thankful heart is a happy heart
I’m glad for what I have,
That’s an easy way to start!
For the love that He shares,
‘Cause He listens to my prayers,
That’s why I say thanks every day
!

~ “The Thankfulness Song” by VeggieTales

Thank you, VeggieTales. I couldn’t have said it better.

A thankful heart is a happy heart.

What are you thankful for today?
