Being Thankful… Wherever 11/23/10

A Prayer for Thanksgiving

I thank Thee, Lord, for blessings, big and small;

For spring’s warm glow and songbird’s welcome call.

For autumns’ hue and winter’s white snow shawl.

I thank thee for harvest rich with grain

For tall trees and quiet shadowed lane;

My country’s land, the mountains and the plain.

I thank thee for each sunset in the sky

For sleepy nights, the bed in which I lie;

a life of truth and peace;  a woman’s hand,

Her hand in mine until the day I die.

I thank Thee, Lord, for all these things above;

but most of all I thank Thee for Thy Love.
