"Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations."
"....Meditate upon His mercies to you from birth. Look at the dangers you have been delivered from, the journeys you have been protected on, the seasonable help He has sent you, the suitable support He has afforded you in distress, the counsel He has given you in doubts, and the comforts He has provided you in sorrow and darkness.....Every breath in your life is a gift of mercy. Do not forget the former favors bestowed on you and your family. An empty perfume bottle still smells when the perfume is gone. Meditate on your present mercies. How many do you enjoy? Your house, family, body, and soul are full of blessings. Think of them particularly, spread them out like jewels to your view. Meditate on how freely they are bestowed, on their fullness and greatness. Your whole life is a bundle of mercies. These stir us up to bless the Giver."
