Let us all give thanks.....

Thanksgiving
****
Let us give thanks for God Above.
Thanks for expressions of His love.
See in the book of nature, grand
Taught by His love on every hand.
****
Let us be thankful in our hearts,
Thankful for all the truth imparts,
For the religion of our Lord,
All that is taught us in His word.
****
Let us be thankful for a land,
That will for such religions stand;
One that protects it by the law,
One that before it stands in awe.
****
Thankful for all things let us be,
Though there be woes and misery;
Lessons they bring us for our good-
Later 'twill all be understood.
****
Thankful for peace o'er land and sea,
Thankful for signs of liberty,
Thankful for homes, for life and health,
Pleasure and plenty, fame and wealth.
****
Thankful for friends and loved ones, too,
Thankful for all things, good and true,
Thankful for harvest in the fall,
Thankful to Him who gave it all.
Wishing all a day filled with family, love and much Thanksgiving.

If that was my table I would so need Prozac. No I think we did have real napkins but the rest is really find a bowl and put the food in it. It is not going to remain there long....
