I wanted to take a moment as I began the day to wish each of our readers a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
I am so thankful for each of you who follow this little blog on a regular basis. Thanks for your loyal readership. Thanks for sharing it with others And thanks to those who take the time to comment, ask questions or offer suggestions. I appreciate it.
We’re taking the rest of the week to enjoy the holiday with our children and grandchildren. But I wanted to share one of my favorite Thanksgiving poems by an unknown author entitled. “Thank You, God, for a Hundred Things.” Hope you enjoy it. Have a great day.
Thank you, God, for the gift of time —
For the clocks that tick, and the bells that chime,
For days gone by, And future cheers,
And seasons, and moments, for hours and years.
Thanks for the people who give life pizzazz —
For folks who play sports, those who act and play jazz,
For friends and for families, For folks of all races,
For hands that give help and for bright smiling faces.
Thanks for the planet you give as our home —
For the sky with its clouds, for the oceans’ white foam,
For the creatures and critters, The lakes, falls and fountains,
For hills and for valleys, for canyons and mountains.
Thank you, God, for the gift of your Son —
For the love Jesus shared, for the battle He won
Over death, for the promise That He would be near
To lead and to guide and to hold us so dear.
Thank you, God, for a hundred things —
For autumn and pumpkins, for dragonfly wings,
For Thanksgiving dinners, For sea sides and shore,
For a hundred things, and a thousand things more!
–Ken Weliever, The Preacherman
