Welcome, to my Monday Blog, my dear friends!! Thank you for visiting and I always welcome your comments!
Most of you know by now that I have a sense of humor…that’s just one of my many gifts from God and the cartoon above is part of that sense of humor; however, I’m most serious about the true meaning of Thanksgiving and this Thursday is Thanksgiving, in our beloved America, dear hearts. I hope we’ll all be celebrating this occasion with family and friends where possible.
Thanksgiving is a word that appears before the word Thanksgiving Day and after thanksgiver in the Mirriam-Webster Dictionary. One of the definitions of the word is “a prayer expressing gratitude”. Well, I have such a prayer below for us all to consider this Thanksgiving…
- “Help Me Thanksgiving Day Prayer:
O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry; When I have work, help me to remember the jobless; When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all; When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer, And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency; bestir my compassion, and be concerned enough to help; By word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted. Amen.”
What a beautifully profound prayer of Thanks!
My prayer for us all this week is that our hearts will be filled with love and gratitude towards one another and that we will share where we can, with those who may need a helping hand, a kind word, a hug, a prayer, whatever the need may be…as Thanksgiving is yet a perfect time for giving thanks and lending a helping hand where we can. Amen.
GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!!
I love you and HAPPY THANKSGIVING,
