Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

This time of year
Is special in my heart
To bow my head and
Give thanks to God
For blessing my family
To live happy and free
To be in the place 
Where we ought to be

To be thankful for our gifts
No matter how little or small
To be cheerful, happy, 
And thankful for them all
For blessing us to eat
The food on our table
Health, strength, and
The fruit of our labor

Thanksgiving bring so 
Much honor and cheer
And I know I am blessed
To be here this year
So, before setting at the 
Table stuffing my face
I will always remember
To be thankful with GRACE!

    To see praise so elequently stated is something else to be thankful for. I love your affirmation of faith in all your work. You have learned well that we are to give honor and praise to God at this and every season of the year. You will find "Prayer of Thanksgiving" on my page. I think you will like it....... Jake
