The true meaning of Thanksgiving is reflected in this religious art piece by Morgan Weistling. Perhaps the most popular Thanksgiving related artwork is Norman Rockwell’s Freedom From Want, which shows a family gathered around the traditional Thanksgiving feast. Contrary to the abundant theme of Norman Rockwell’s piece, A Thankful Heart features a little girl with hands folded and head bowed, giving thanks for a humble meal. The table is devoid of any fancy trimmings or decor, and we can see that the child is wearing an apron, perhaps from having helped prepare the simple meal before her. Morgan Weistling uses this religious artwork to remind us to be thankful for the little we receive as well as the bounty.

Stumble it!
