Thanksgiving 2020

Ahhh...Thanksgiving Day.  A day of celebration?  A day of gratitude?  A time to reflect on the blessings we've had over the past 12 months?  REALLY?!  Yes, really!

How 'thankful' can a person be
in days and times that are?
Regardless of 'environs' 
thankfulness goes o so far!
And much have we to thank God for
if we but stop and think!
For without Jesus in these times,
Thanksgiving--it would stink!
For though we can't have everyone,
yet still have we each other.
Pick up the phone and call your friend,
your sister or your brother!
Remind them of the blessings that
no 'issues' come between;
and don't forget to call your elders--
so much may THAT call mean!

Thanksgiving--oh so differently,
yet thankful each we are!
And having that heart of gratitude
can go so very far!
Let not the issues that abound
affect joys that are real!
Live your gratitude to God
in ways none may conceal!

Yes, it IS possible to do this, even in the days that are!  You feel great?  THANK GOD!  You don't feel so great, thank Him anyway!  You're barely hanging on?  Thank Him even then, for He is the One holding you in the palm of His hand, and HE IS WORTHY!
