Joyful Thanksgiving

Hope you have a joyful Thanksgiving! I found this sweet poem and wanted to share it with you.

Thanksgiving Tradition and Family

At the dinner table, all circled round;

Our Grandma and Grandpa, Momma and Dad.

All of us children so ready to eat;

A Thanksgiving feast, like we’ve never had.

Grandpa gives thanks for all the years gone by;

For all his children and the pumpkin pie.

For Grandma’s love and all her faithful care;

Then tears fall from my grandma’s eyes.

Grandma chimes in with her words very wise;

With thanks to the Lord with all He provides.

Mamma leans over to give her a hug;

And the love echoes-from every side.

Then daddy prays a Thanksgiving prayer;

With warmth and love from the depths of his soul.

For the food, and all of God’s many blessings;

Then the food comes around, “please pass the rolls.”

Green beans, potatoes and corn on the cob;

Turkey with stuffing and giblet gravy.

Washing the dishes and watching football;

Thanksgiving tradition and family.

Thanksgiving day is a very good day;

A day of praise, a day of memories.

A day to cherish most faithfully;

Because we are blessed, because we are free.

The main reason is because God is good;

And that He watches over us with heed.

Just as He watches over each sparrow;

And gives life to a newly planted seed.
