But first, let's start with this video: Muppet Christmas Carol. After watching it, please come back here.
Old Mr. Scrooge discovered that if he awoke each morning with a grateful prayer and thankful heart he'd find peace and joy. It took his being shown his bleak future to wake him up from the nightmare he was living from being so stingy and uncaring.
Our next video, Veggie Tales, we learn that a thankful heart is a happy heart and the way to achieve this is to thank God every day for everything He has given us.
In this Peanuts video Sally gripes about having to write an essay at school because of Thanksgiving. She definitely does NOT evoke the spirit of a thankful heart.
And last but not least Winnie the Pooh has some wisdom about what it means to have a thankful heart.
Thank you Father for impressing upon me my need for You and for enabling me to have a thankful heart.
