A Legend of Gratitude
Posted by happypizza on November 11, 2008
There is a legend about two angels who were sent to earth to gather up the prayers of mankind.
One was to fill his basket with their petitions and the other was to gather their expressions of thankfulness. Some time later they both went back to the heavens.
One had a basket heaped high and running over with the innumerable petitions of men. The other returned with a sad and heavy heart, for his basket was almost empty.
The thanks of men were heard rarely on earth, even though the angel had searched diligently.
Let us not forget to express our thankuflness in our prayers.
