During this time, of our way of living…
We take a day that we call; “Thanksgiving.”
The early pilgrims took time, to thank the Lord.
Though there wasn’t much,
they could “afford.”
They wanted to thank God, for all he gave them!
This was their way to really thank him!
Over the years, and how this country’s leaning.
It seems like we’ve lost it’s true meaning!
We’ve so much pleasures and entertainment.
I think we’re becoming “complacent.”
As many are proud of they’ve “achieved.”
Giving thanks to God is seldom received…
It’s more than serving a turkey and dinner meal.
Isn’t it time to thank God?
Who made this all real!
As we approach this time of the season…
Let’s be thankful to God! And for good reason!
He’s given everything we call as “our own.”
He’s given our health and our home!
It’s no secret what God’s done for you…
Be thankful to him in everything you do!
He makes it possible
for you to be here!
Let’s honor him!
As Thanksgiving draws near!
