Take some time off this Thanksgiving season — away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping frenzy — and meditate on and be thankful for all the good things God has blessed us with.
We have so much to be thankful for…
Thanksgiving is here, so our minds have turned
To what time has taught us, to what we’ve learned:
We often focus all our thought
On shiny things we’ve shopped and bought.
We take our pleasure in material things,
Forgetting the pleasure that friendship brings.
If a lot of our stuff just vanished today,
We’d see the foundation of each happy day
Is special relationships, constant and true,
And that’s when our thoughts go directly to you.
We wish you a Thanksgiving you’ll never forget,
Full of love and joy—your best one yet!
~ Joanna Fuchs
Be thankful for home
Be thankful for food
Be thankful for birds that fly
For clouds in the sky.
Be thankful for friends
Be thankful for rain
And the rainbows that follow close by.
