The Thanksgiving holiday is an excellent time to rediscover the psalms of praise and thanksgiving. When you find a quiet moment, sit and relax with your bible. Think of a time when gratitude overwhelmed you. Maybe it was a sunrise, children playing in a park, an inspirational hymn at Mass, a family gathering, or a walk in the woods. Then, open your bible to one of the psalms of thanksgiving and recite it to yourself, like Psalm 118 for instance: “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Listen to the words. Let the psalm speak to you. Other psalms of praise and thanksgiving include psalms 92, 95, 98, 100, 103, 104, 105, 107, 111, 117, 145, and 147. Thank God for all the good things in your life, and praise God for his glorious deeds.  ~  International Catholic Stewardship Council
