Giving thanks from a grateful heart - no one can do what Jesus does - Giving thanks for life, breath, wisdom, strength - for the many blessings He has given to us - Giving thanks for His sacrifice of Himself for our souls - without Him we would be destined to hell’s fury and fire - Giving thanks for our bountiful blessings - our cup runneth over and our tables overflow with more than enough - Giving thanks by giving to others we see in need - the hands of God on the earth - Giving thanks for the health He has given us - by His stripes we are healed - to live another day - to walk in His grace - for it is sufficient - it is more than enough - Giving thanks to a God who sits high and looks down on mankind - blessings on the undeserving - just and unjust - what a wonderful God is He - as I

Give Him thanks - this Thanksgiving!

Giving thanks for the joy of the Lord - even in the hard times - He is in control - for all things work together for good - in His kingdom - He turns around the evil for good - Giving thanks for the life he has given us - to proclaim His glory - to speak His name to those who need a word of hope - Giving thanks for the peace that surpasses understanding -  we know all things for his children has to come through His hands - and all is well - His love is now - He never fails - He is faithful to those who trust in the hand that rocked our cradle - He takes us to a place of rest and beauty - Giving thanks for the big and small things in life - He opens doors that none can close - He puts the lonely in families - to show His love - we are never alone -  His Spirit surrounds us - His angels guard us - protecting and serving

This thanksgiving and always!

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...
