'In everything give thanks' - banner.

A Thanksgiving Thought

When you woke up this morning
And washed your sleepy face,
Did you think to pause a minute or two
And thank God for His grace?

Or when you stepped outside today
And you saw that big blue sky,
And that shinin' sun that smiles on you
Like the Lord was sayin' "Hi"...
Did you stop to pray and thank the Lord
For the good He sends your way,
For His matchless love and His endless care
That He pours out everyday?

How would you rate
At the Pearly Gate
If God said,  "Don't you know...
You've as many days
As you filled with praise
When you walked down there below!"

Would you get to spend
Just a short weekend
Or a half a dozen worth,
If He let you stay
For each single day
That you thanked Him while on earth?

While it sure is great
That we celebrate
What we call Thanksgiving Day,
And it's fun to see
All the family
And to watch the children play...

Still, it just seems odd
That we thank our God
Only when Thanksgiving's here,
For it seems to me
Giving thanks should be
Every day throughout the year!


"Giving thanks always
for all things
unto God and the Father
in the name of our Lord
Jesus Christ."
(Ephesians 5:20 KJV)
