Here is a good scripture that talks about being thankful. I hope you enjoy it.
“O how you ought to thank your heavenly King!
“I say unto you, my brethren, that if you should render all the thanks and praise which your whole soul has power to possess, to that God who has created you, and has kept and preserved you, and has caused that ye should rejoice, and has granted that ye should live in peace one with another—
“I say unto you that if ye should serve him who has created you from the beginning, and is preserving you from day to day, by lending you breath, that ye may live and move and do according to your own will, and even supporting you from one moment to another—I say, if ye should serve him with all your whole souls yet ye would be unprofitable servants.” (Mosiah 2:19–21.)

I was reading in Isaiah 29:10-19 And I began thinking about how Great and wonderful the scriptures are to us. As I was reading these few versus I began to think about what the Lord said to Isaiah. I believe with all my heart that The Lord was talking about the Book Of Mormon. I know that Heavenly Father loves his children! As you continue to follow this Blog you will see more scriptures that will point out that the Book Of Mormon is the Word of God, just as the Holy Bible is. You will also see how Joseph Smith was called by God to be a prophet, and to restore Christ's church.
12 And the book is delivered to ahim that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a amarvellous bwork among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the cwisdom of their wise men shall dperish, and the eunderstanding of their fprudent men shall be hid.
And in 15-19 we also read, 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their acounsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who bseeth us? and who knoweth us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the awork say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
