T houghtfully open heart in thankfulness
H onoring God for graciousness, unlimited access

A nd remeber all things in appreciativeness
N ot forgetting air we breath, blue sky we have in excess

K nights and princesses; children of the Living God
S ing a joyful song praising Him don't put on grand facade

G ive of yourself in thanks and rejoice in His love
I nvite the Holy Spirit to dwell within your heart dove

V ictory can be yours each step of the way my friend
I f time in God's presence in praise and worship daily spend

N ow is the time in His presence and purpose to remain
G ratitude said for all of life's pleasures even life's pain.

S tillness and quiet each day spend time thank God for each and everyone

This is a combination Acrostic and couplets..
My understanding that Acrostics do not rhyme but mine is actually couplets written in poulter's measure..A person who sold eggs would sometimes give a dozen eggs for a price and sometimes if the hens were laying extra good a person would get 14 eggs of the same price..Lucky them..So 12/14 in rhyming couplets..

    Sara, this is a lovely poem. I see you have a strong faith in God and His goodness. I do too. :) Thanks for your comment on my poem; I agree with all you said in light of "forgive as He has forgiven us". Been reading your poetry. Lovely images! Hugs!

    wow, you combined a lot of techniques in this one, SAra. A very well crafted poem. I enjoyed seeing it. Sorry it took me so long. I have been so busy and I need to start cooking in 20 min. but I still have many poets to see before that. Wish me LUCK.

    beautiful acrostic couplets, Sara - a sure winner here. Interesting info about poulterers' dozens - we say bakers' dozen for 13 (they don't give 13 instead of 12 nowadays, though, lol)
