Sunset flare sits like
Heaven’s flame on the prairie
In a cloudy stream.
Whenever I am
Hurt, God makes me strong again
And lifts my faint heart.

Through time, dreams fade and
Are broken; hope dares you to
Start over again.

Thankful for a glorious new day;
Thankful for the sun and the rain.
Thankful for the blue sky and the clouds;
Also, when the sun rises and gently goes down.
Thankful for the mountains, the meadows,
And the hills covered with emerald jeweled forests.
Also for the rippling lakes and rumbling oceans where
In the grain-sifting sand, my feet can sink and rest.
Thankful for the twittering birds of the air
and for butterflies fluttering here and there.
Thankful for close friends and family;
Thankful for the holidays when we meet
And the lifetime of cherished memories.
Thankful for their encouragement and their words
And the sweet moments locked forever in my heart.
Thankful for God, our Heavenly Father
Who reigns above forever and ever
And who so did love man
That he authored a lasting plan
To save us from our sins and from
Our many worldly and selfish whims.
Thankful for how God gives life purpose
For each new day with his mission; his focus.
Thankful for Jesus, His Son, and my Savior
And the hope he gives for an eternal future.
Thankful for the Lord who is always listening
And generously showers us with his blessings.
Thankful for the night when I can rest and sleep
Knowing Jesus is lovingly watching over me.
“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts to which indeed
you were called… And be thankful.”
Colossians 3:15 (Holy Bible ESV)
Together once again with family and many friends.
House is aflutter with enticing aromas, clanging pans, and laughter.
Abundant home baked delights camouflage the table from sight.
Nature adds the wintry cold and a pristine layer of fresh snow.
Kittens, dogs, and children happily scamper through the hectic kitchen.
Sounds of boos and cheers from a televised game fill the atmosphere.
Grandparents, aunts, and uncles attend with young and smiling cousins.
Intrigued and famished family members finally around the table gather.
Vibrant and lively celebration of peace, joy, and prayerful thanksgiving.
Invited and included too are the dear friends loved by you.
Never neglecting or forgetting God’s numerous blessings.
Gathered and united in love while watched by the Lord from above.
Spooks and goblins here
and there beneath Halloween
night’s glowing moon stare.
