†I Give Thanks!

I give thanks for all the tables I have sat around - where good food, friends and family could always be found - I give thanks for Godís Amazing Grace and Amazing Love - made for us in the heavenlies sent from above - I give thanks for His Angelic Host that keep watch over my soul - I give thanks for His protection during the night - When I am asleep I am still in His sight - I give thanks for each breath that I take - given to me by a loving God - who will make all good things come together making it right - making all things possible that will last Ö.

I give thanks for the years that have passed - and loved ones who have gone on before - who behold Godís face and so much more - We will remain forever young - in His eyes we will never grow old - I give thanks for the Greatest story ever told - Jesus, the bright and morning star - who is close to my heart and never far - I give thanks as I enter His gates - and praise as I come into His courts - I give thanks for this day and every day the Lord has made - I will rejoice and be happy - and laugh, live and loveÖ

His love and mine I give, this Thanksgiving Day

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all!

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
