Some of my favorite scriptures about being thankful. In the Habakkuk passage the word thankful is not used, but certainly implied. Growing up on a farm in Mississippi I learned that without rain the food and crops did not grow. Therefore we were thankful to God for rain among His many blessings. Henry Luke November 24, 2014
Habakkuk 3:17-18 Though the fig tree should not blossom
And there be no fruit on the vines,

18 Yet I will exult in the LORD,
I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
