Good Words

God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way. - Anon

Happy (burp) Thanksgiving

The table was set with fine crystal and silver
 with family and friends all gathered around
 the turkey was roasted all golden and browned
with trimmings galore we sat ourselves down
gave thanks for our blessings with Gods grace to abound
 we carved up that bird then passed it 'round
'til not an empty plate was to be found
we ate and we laughed, sharing stories
and telling of times shared together
with this one or that one, good times all around
 and then we ate more
with belly's now full 
our plates are now empty
and our hearts are so full
we are thankful and happy
 for pants that are stretchy
for no sooner was dinner down in our belly
we all had pie with ice cream, do tell
So with thankful hearts and full bellies
we give thanks to God, for family and friends
and wish you all Happy (burp) Thanksgiving blessings!

The End.

Psalm 145:21
My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord,
And all flesh shall bless His holy name
Forever and ever.


Amen.

Very cute! I have never cooked my own Thanksgiving dinner. Is that lazy or smart? ;)

Thank God for strechy pants I tell ya! Looks and sounds like a good time -- like your poem, too!
