'Twas a very nice thanksgiving, thank you
We enjoyed a special meal,
While autumn leaves were blowing
With a sentimental feel.
The turkey was delicious
The stuffing, mashed potato too,
Sweet cranberry sauce and beans
And over pumpkin pie we drooled.
All the children squealed and played
And Grandma smiled with glee,
The sunshine melted all the snow
And shone so prettily.
Oh how we love the special symbols
Of our thanksgiving time,
When together we can gather
In the blessings of our time.
As we offered up our prayers
For those both far and near,
Who suffer depth of anguish
And never ending fear.
For those who fought for hope
To bravely claim their land,
We felt the wonder yet again
How God led them in their plan.
We thanked Him for our soldiers
Who give their lives with love,
To grant to us our freedom
Our family and fun.
And so we're thankful for thanksgiving
Our time of grateful prayer,
While every day we thank the Lord
For special folk who care.

Poetry from The Heart
I will praise the Lord
according to his righteousness:
and will sing praise to
the name of the Lord most high.
