A Time for Thanksgiving...

A Time For Thanksgiving!


During this time, of our way of living…

We take a day that we call; “Thanksgiving.”


The pilgrims took time, to thank the Lord.

Though there wasn’t much,

 they could afford.


They wanted to thank God, for all he gave them!

This was their way for them to thank him!


I think about the direction this country is leaning.

It seems like we’ve lost Thanksgiving’s true meaning!


We’ve so much pleasures and entertainment...

I think we’re becoming too “complacent.”


As many are proud of what they achieved…

Giving thanks to God is seldom received…


It’s more than serving a turkey and dinner meal.

Isn’t it time to thank God?

 Who made all of this real!


As we approach this time of the season…

Let’s be thankful to God and for good reason!


He’s given everything we call “our own.”

He’s given us our health and home!


 God’s done so much for me and you!

Let’s be thankful to him in all we do!


He makes it all possible

 for you and me!

Let’s thank him

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
