Thanksgiving 2009

Lips that utter frequent thanksgivings

shall be blessed by God,

and the grateful heart is visited by grace.

(St. Isaac the Syrian)


Basket of Apples by Levi Prentice, 1895


We Orthodox pray fervently and frequently

for God to bless the entire world

with an abundance of the fruits of the earth. 

Let us also frequently and fervently

give thanks to the Creator

for the harvest which He has bestowed on us.
