A THANKSGIVING DAY PRAYER


So many blessings through the year
Bring joy and peace of mind
As loved ones gather in good cheer
Drawn by the ties that bind
The warmth that kindred spirits share
Fills hearts with love renewed
What better time to show we care
With acts of gratitude
Let's usher in the season new
A toast to you and me
As debt to those who serve is due
We're here, we're safe, we're free
The bounty present in our sight
In humble thanks we pray
Will gladden more than appetites
Tomorrow as today
Remember dear departed souls
Unite us all again
Give us strength to reach our goals
Watch over us,
AMEN

(This prayer will be read at our Thanksgiving Meal.....written by Ed, my Sweetie Man)
MAY YOU ALL HAVE A WARM AND WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING!
