Happy T-Day!

Today, among the many things I’m thankful for, are you faithful readers of this blog. I hope you have a blessed and meaningful Thanksgiving Day. 

 A Thanksgiving Day Prayer

 Lord, so often times, as any other day

When we sit down to our meal and pray

 We hurry along and make fast the blessing

Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing

 We’re slaves to the olfactory overload

We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold

 But Lord, I’d like to take a few minute more

To really give thanks to what I’m thankful for

 For my family, my health, a nice soft bed

My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head

 I’m thankful right now to be surrounded by those

Whose lives touch me more than they’ll ever possibly know

 Thankful Lord, that You’ve blessed me beyond measure

Thankful that in my heart lives life’s greatest treasure

 That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place

And I’m ever so grateful for Your unending grace

 So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You’ve provided

And bless each and every person invited
