Gratitude "Day"

Thanksgiving.  Not JUST a holiday...not a "springboard" into a season of over-spending...not merely an excuse to get out of work for a few days.  No, Thanksgiving is something that SHOULD be lived each and every moment of EVERY day because we are SO very blessed!

Gratitude unto my God

to even be alive!
Grateful--to go out the door
and, safely, to arrive!
Grateful for to hear His voice
but all throughout the day;
grateful that He guards our path
each step along the way!
And so grateful for the many friends
and the family
that He places on the path
at every step that be!
Even those I do know not
with whom I come in touch--
ministry--it happens!  Causing
gratitude, so much!

Thanksgiving--more than just a day,
it is a state of heart!
Whatever happens, something is
where "thanks" you may impart!
Give it unto God--for He
has caused that thanks to be!
Thanksgiving day...a "holiday?"
A way of life, you see!

There is so much to be thankful for.  Even through the disasters of late, there is STILL a lot to be thankful for.
It is this writer's prayer that you do not have to think too hard to find something for which to give Him thanks...EVERY DAY!  For He is worthy of it all!
