gobble gobble

Let us give thanks to God above,
Thanks for expressions of His love,
Seen 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 religion 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.

(Lizelia Augusta Jenkins Moorer)

Wishing you all a very

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. The news story about the awful shoppers stampede was news to me. It just underlines for me the terrible plague of consumerism in our time. May God have mercy on us.
Diana, I've been reading your posts and haven't always stopped to say hello, but know that I'm still enjoying your perspective on life.
And watch out for those vampires!
