Thanksgiving and Thankful

Thanksgiving and Thankful Written: by Tom Wright My heart was burdened with much concern, For a person whom God placed in my path; While the rationality I did not easily discern, Obedience allowed me to escape His wrath. This assigned duty which was bestowed, To me alone, & 'twas from God conveyed. a friendship from this single act has flowed, From those incessant prayers once prayed.

God, you are Amazing

Author Dana Redricks
May 11, 2017

There are no words 
to describe how great you are.
You are the great I am
from beginning to the end
You’re the eternal God
You are our Father
You are our Sheppard, provider, 
our deliverer,
You are the king of kings
The creator of everything
You are amazing
In all the universe, 
there is none like you
You are amazing, amazing God
Each creature with its own design
You are the master builder
You’re one of a kind
You are amazing, amazing God

I'm grateful for

I'm grateful for, a sunny day,
When rays of light shine on your face.
I'm grateful for, a moonlit night,
We dance together under it's light.

I'm grateful for, your smiling face,
With you I've been blessed by grace.
I'm grateful for, your tender touch,
Your loving ways I feel so much.

I'm grateful for, a southern breeze,
It's warm caress puts me at ease.
I'm grateful for, the love I've found,
It makes my heart with joy abound.

I'm grateful for, a trickling creek,
When I'm at peace, it's you I seek.
I'm grateful for, fresh mountain air,
When I'm up that high, I feel you there.

I'm grateful for, really, everything,
Each little thing, and the joy it brings.
I'm grateful for, peace in my soul.
I've done my best, now I feel whole.

But most of all,
I'm grateful to God above,
For giving me life, showing me his love.

Forever Grateful

He sees me deep through my soul,
His palms mark the lives He toiled for,
No one can be compared to Him,
‘Cause he’s a miracle of His own.

Unlike many kings, He is remarkable, 
With His thorny crown,
And His stick scepter,
He build a kingdom of humble gold.

Hundred Goliaths he defeated,
Steeled walls He crumpled
With bare hands and pure faith
To raise a blood of His own.

It would take centuries to fill
The blood and sweat He poured for our cradle
And I will forever be proud to say
Thank you and I love you my Savior.

Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 

Psalm 5: 11

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

Psalm 4: 7

You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.

Psalm 150

1
Praise the Lord
Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty heavens.

2 
Praise him for his acts of power;
    praise him for his surpassing greatness

3 
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
    praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
    praise him with the strings and pipe,

5 
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
    praise him with resounding cymbals.

6 
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord

Praise the Lord

3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

12 days of kiss-mas

On the 12th day of kiss-mass my true love sent to me
12 dirty undies
11 socks a stinking
10 shoes a humming
9 shirts for pressing
8 trousers 
7 days of take-out boxes
6 flagons of beer
5 D V D's
4 mischievous children
3 dozen wine bottles
2 ex partners

A Ride With Mom

A Ride With Mom


All alone in bed
Tonight I am dreaming of the dead

Mom and I were in the car driving
I had no idea where we would be arriving

It was a sunny day
Mom didn’t have much to say

Then suddenly I awoke
This ride was no joke

All these questions in my head
This always happens to me with a visit from the dead

What did Mom want to tell me
Did she just want to share Thanksgiving Glee

So now Mom’s presence in my dream
Sends me to my desk to write down my mental stream

I haven’t dream’t of Mom in years
Not since the Funeral Fears

It’s Two AM in the mourn
Writing this poem is this how Love is born

I will tell my new Lady Friend
About my dream and what I have penned

Did Mom want to hear about Caroline
The Spanish Mexican Beauty who is Divine

Long Luscious Black Hair
A Beautiful Face Beyond Compare

An Angel’s Voice
I have no choice

Her spell is starting to take hold of me
The sight of her can send any man to his knee

Her aroma is intoxicating
I think she is much more than a Fall Fling

Saturday I will give her a purple and white rose
This woman has driven me to write prose

Well I guess it is my turn to take a Female Chance
Maybe we will both find romance

Is this why Mom took me for a ride tonight
To show me my search for Love is finally in sight

Only time will tell if Mom is right
That Caroline will be my darling delight

How Can I Give Jesus Everything That He Deserves?


How can I give Jesus everything that He deserves?
How can I repay Him for His time?
Three long hours he spent upon the Cross of Calvary
That you and I might live eternally.

How can I give Jesus everything that He deserves?
Gold and silver slip right through my hands.
All I have to offer Him is my thanksgiving prayer—
With Jesus, I am rich beyond compare.

He loves me though I’m a sinner,
And He purchased me with all his blood and pain,
And it makes me feel so humble—
His loss upon the Cross became my gain.

How can I give Jesus everything that He deserves?
His suffering and tears have washed me clean.
Forgiving me for all the evil wickedness I’ve done—
Thank God for giving me His only Son.

Prime Mover

Like the seraphs whose wings unfold,
Christ's light and glory goes not untold;
as the love of his humble grace
moves inside me all time and space,

as the planets orbit heaven's sun
and encircle it one by one--
so, too, am I caught in his sway,
beloved of him from day to day.

Through hosts of astral dimension
God's angels fix their attention
with expectancy and burning pause
around the universe's First Cause.

He, the one true Incarnation  
that begets cosmic causation,
resolves the Infinite Regress
from the pre-Socratics' egress

with his omniscient wisdom
and the archives of his kingdom
where all can come and read and know
what miracles he'll yet bestow.

It's Thanksgiving

"It's Thanksgiving" is a children's song, sung to the tune of "Oh, My Darling Clementine".

It's Thanksgiving, it's Thanksgiving,
It's Thanksgiving-time to eat;
Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes,
Pumpkin pie...yum, what a treat!

Bonus activity: Ask children if they were preparing Thanksgiving dinner, which foods they would prepare. Would they prepare traditional dishes, such as turkey, mashed potatoes and pie? Or nontraditional dishes like tofu turkey and carob chocolate pie? Or, would they simply order a pizza? Why did the child choose that particular menu fare-love of tradition, special dietary needs, ease of preparation?

Thanksgiving

      
In the bosom of compassion
In the comfort of the home
We will gather with our families
And will see how they have grown

On the table there is always a cornucopia of treats
A centerpiece that’s fully blooming
A selection of tasty sweets

While outside the foliage’s glowing
And emotions, it evokes
Inspiration that is growing
Magnificence, it does invoke

It is time to offer blessings
It is time to appreciate
As this holiday is vital
And we need to celebrate

So in sum, we bestow honor
And festivities embrace
On this day of commemoration
It holds for us a special place - By Alona Perlin.

"I thought this poem had wonderful imagery and embraced fall, as well as the celebration of Thanksgiving in its content.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and I tried to capture the warmth and glory of this holiday in this poetic form"

Autumns Thanksgiving Dance

As you dance among the leaves absorbing Autumns chilly breeze 
   Evocative colors brain ingests assist minds eye a peaceful rest.
It may bring you to your knees, this painted landscape of the trees
   Every eye, instantly pleased, boredom authentically appeased 
Upon thoughts of raking leaves, deceased. 
   Inhaled moments to be seized as, canvas doesn't capture rapture
Sound amplifies escorting passing hisses
   Painting simply is remiss as each leaf blows its own individual bliss
Sensations semi~ breathless, Whirlwind whips to face doth kiss
  Spicy cider, crisp cool air, Enticing smells are everywhere
Ion forces that charge hair, Senses transformed to keenly aware
   Like cleansing rain comes to care, Autumn has a harvest to share
Pumpkin tastes digested and relished,  Gardens abundance is embellished
   Palate welcomes earths new harvest,
Soups asparagus and leek guides taste buds to seek 
   Cinnamon nutmeg sprinkle invites tongue top to twinkle
Hints of future bursting creeks, all signs of how nature speaks
   Swelling beauty gently peaks,
Swirling twirling everywhere, dance in Autumns love affair
  Let it call you to your knees as you pray within the trees
Spying worker honey bees readying for winters freeze
   Brisk intoxicating air expanding lung, Supports the life you are among
Dance as Autumns song is sung, Tantalizing color ubiquitously hung
        ~The Joyful Season of Thanksgiving has finally begun~

Could be

 I wake up before the sun from a cozy bed

I walk outside and feel the crisp autumn chill

So I put a stocking cap on my head

 

I walk through the back yard

heading for the woods

doing something city boy

only wish they could

 

I arrive at my stand

and check the direction of the breeze

before I climb up ole faithful

a dying, dark barked maple tree

I make myself comfortable

as the sun stretches its arms 

for the sky

producing iridescent colors

I live for the outdoor

and that's one of the reasons why

 

Not far behind me a freshly cut field of hay

in front endless rows of cornstalks fill the way

 

I begin to think of a tradition

My son and I on thanksgiving day.

he is still here with me

even though last November he passed away

 

I start hearing cars doors shut

its coming from over the hill

carrying an aroma of cinnamon

It's my favorite! Pumpkin pie

Justin, I'll be back, But for now Goodbye

Called to be a blessing
Called to be a blessing through Christ our Lord

And. . .

give gave given you gave more
You love, your praise, your life you hope, your name
Father, I thank you for giving me fortitude
and Father, I thank you for
Your wisdom and guidance and gratitude

And...

You were called to be a blessing yes you were
Called to be a blessing
Called to be a blessing through Jesus Christ

And...

with your words you shall be heard;
thanks be to you my sister, brother for those words
You love your praise your life your hope your name;
Again and again and again I'll sing. . .

Ring Around The Pumpkin

For the bounty of the earth
Come Ye thankful people come
For it is Autumn
And the leaves are coming down
Run run sweet John Barley Corn
Let's play ring around the pumpkin
As the harvest moon shines
On the jingle jangle scarecrow
For I'am just a little acorn
Bounded for another harvest home
As the wind shakes the barley
Like a slow Thanksgiving waltz
For our farmers sets the table
To a wondrous haymakers hoedown
For we bid ado to a Shokan's fairwell
And now thank we to all our God



Happy Harvest Time To All

Thank You Lord

THANK YOU LORD

For Your love and Your tender care;
When I need You, You’re always there
Helping me as I walk life’s road,
Showing me the way, lest I stray, so I say, “Thank You, Lord.”

For Your word that showed me my need,
For the ones who would preach and plead,
For the day You took all my sin
And gave me Your peace, full release, so I say, “Thank You, Lord.”

For the blood that You shed for me
On the cross there at Calvary,
For the day You rose from the grave
And the power You give as I live, so I say, “Thank You, Lord.”

For this land where I’m free to pray
And to praise You this special way,
For the hope that some day I’ll go
To Your home on high, ne’er to die, so I say, “Thank You, Lord.”

When I stand there on heaven’s shore
Free from sin there forever more,
I will look in Your loving eyes
And say it again, this refrain, “Thank You, Lord.  Thank You, Lord.”

	These words written to “Danke Schoen.”

Orpheus My Valentine Not Dead

Last night I believed I saw three Witch Beings 
relent and cast down from winter moon 
Orpheus, free riding.  

Happy all with his magical lyre.
Not in bereavements of old, 
no traps and lures set with crying, 
he called to me.

His sun-gold limbs were elegant intact.
Feet swift where night wind took him.
Blood red were his cheeks and marked,
telling where he’d been.

By fate or by plan that night he came
into my darkened room, my bed.
His whispered song tenderly to hold me.
Orpheus, my valentine, not dead.

Pray

I don't know about my tomorrow,
I don't know how today will end,
My expectations might be my disappointments,
For my will might not be aligned with His,
The only weapon I have is prayer,
Though I can't see You, I know that Your with me,
Though I can't touch You, I know that you walk with me.
I acknowledge Your presence, 
Your love heals the broken, 
Your touch strengthens those who have faith,
Your voice restores those who were lost,
Your mercy is endless, 
Your full of grace and power, 
I ain't worth in Your presence yet You saved me, 
You guide me when I am lost, 
Each day I find meaning in life through You,
I can see the beauty regardless of the situations, 
I have learned to appreciate life and it's strugglings, 
Even though we face hardships we hope of brighter days,
Even though humanity is at rivalry, we place our prayers at Your throne.
How many are willing to pray for our nation? 
How many will hold the hand of thy neighbor?
How many will value life instead of tribal lines? 
With all the rejection you face acceptance is the remedy,
With each struggle, you face you'll conquer them, 
The only weapon left is prayer,
No war lasts a century, peace is established with time.
Pray for love,
Pray for a better future,
Pray for unity and harmony,
Pray for thy neighbor, 
Pray for its a opportunity to talk with God. 
Will you pray?

He Will Always Provide

 I am just a little sparrow, one lost soul
I am just repented and I just need to be whole;
Lord, Jesus will you save me and redeem my soul;
I am hungry God and I am starving;
I am homeless God I need shelter;
I am improvised Lord, God came you give me a dime;
I am confused Oh, OH can you save my mind;

all I only know;
all I can't control;
but this feeling I have I sure;
you will always provide;
if you will do for the sparrow;
what less would you do for me;
if you will do for the robins;
I know, I know you will, you will ;
you will always provide for;

whether I pray for it or not, you'll provide;
whether I ask for it or not, you'll provide;
and just when I think you've forgotten me;
 He will, He does;
My God; 
He will always provide;
I'm just a sparrow and I know my God;
He will always provide;
