|“||Ebenezer Stooge: What, through that very dirty window?
|“||Ebenezer Stooge: You're not going to take me to the cemetery to show me my future? Here lies Ebenezer Stooge, pauper, hated by one and all?
Terrance Clodbody: Well, I'd like to, but I can't. It's not in the budget. Besides, you don't have to see all that to know the right thing to do. The lonely grave will only be your future if you want it to be, Ebenezer. It's up to you. But if you do want to change, being thankful for the right reasons is a good place to start.
|“||Ebenezer Stooge: I'm confused, Spirit. The Wretcheds, the people at the mission — they have nothing. And yet they are still thankful.
Terrance Clodbody: And you have everything, but are not.
Ebenezer Stooge: Well, it doesn't make any sense.
Terrance Clodbody: It would if you knew what they knew.
Ebenezer Stooge: What? What do they know?
Terrance Clodbody: That true happiness does not lie in things, but in the Maker of all things.
Ebenezer Stooge: You mean, God?
Terrance Clodbody: Yes. The one who truly understands that can be thankful in any situation, whether rich or poor, well-fed or hungry, in good health or gravely ill. Earlier, this afternoon, you asked Bob Wretched what God has to do with Thanksgiving. Well, that is what He has to do with it. Take Him out, and the holiday becomes meaningless.
