A Thankful Heart

I know many of you take part in Thankful Thursday.  Here is a little tidbit I came across that should make any of us thankful.  God is so good to us if we will just count our blessings.

After one of the terrible battles of the Civil War, a dying soldier asked to see the chaplain.  When the chaplain arrived, he supposed the young man would wish him to beseech God for his recovery; but his request was different.  First, the soldier asked him to cut off a lock of his hair for his mother, and then he asked him to kneel down and thank God.  “What for?”  asked the surprised chaplain.

“For giving me such a mother.  Thank God that I am a Christian.  And thank God for giving me grace to die with.  And thank God for the Home He has promised me over there.”

And so the chaplain knelt down by the dying man, and in his prayer hehad praise and gratitude.
