unexpected pleasures

      If you choose to give thanks today (as much as you can and as often as you can and for every small thing you can think of), you’ll probably find a lot of unexpected pleasures.

“[St. Francis] was above all things a great giver; and he cared chiefly for the best kind of giving, which is called thanksgiving. . . .” G. K. Chesterton   

“[Do not] give grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves joyous giving.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
