Thanksgiving Day Prayer Today, dear Lord, we gather here In fellowship and love, Mindful of the wondrous gifts That come from thee above. For this feast, we thank thee, Lord… For health, that here abounds… For love, that fills and warms our hearts… For children’s happy sounds. For shelter of our cozy homes For freedom of this land For right to live the life we choose For nature’s bounty, grand. These blessings you bestow on us Outshine all want and strife. We thank thee, Lord for this day, We thank thee, Lord, for life. Sandra M. Haight ~2nd Place~ Contest: Thanksgiving Sponsor: Nayda Ivette Negron Judged: 11/19/2016

This is a lovely piece Sandra. All one has to do these days to become so thankful is to watch the news. The refugees walking long distances with what little they can carry with no food no water. Trying to bury their dead along the way. I reach for my checkbook, my way of giving thanks, is to share what I have. We will dine on a roast chicken and bless those who are going through hell. Freedom is indeed a blessed gift! 7 ; )
