Thanks Be to God!

I couldn't even begin to list all the wonderful blessings I have received from the Lord this year. He has been so good to me personally and I just want to acknowledge His goodness!!

I wish all of you out there in bloggerville and very blessed thanksgiving!!! I thought I would post a few poems and pics for your enjoyment. Have a great one!!!!


It's Not About Turkey

Thanksgiving is not about turkey,
Stuffing and pumpkin pie,

Neither holiday hoopla,
Nor parades passing by...

Dare I mention football
With its endless string of games,

Being a couch potato,
Or a day off from work with pay?

Thanksgiving once was set aside
To bless and honor God,

To thank Him for His mercies
And for the land on which we trod.

Thanksgiving is a holy day
Sacred and set apart,

A special day of reverence
With rejoicing from the heart.

Family, food, and fellowship
Most certainly have their place;

But don't forget to bless the Lord
Full of love and grace.
-George Thurlow


But THANKS BE TO GOD, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ
1 Cor 15:57


T'was the night of Thanksgiving, But I just couldn't sleep
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned The dark meat and white,

But I fought the temptation With all of my might.

Tossing and turning with anticipation,
The thought of a snack became infatuation.

So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door,

And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.

Gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,

Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,

'Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, Floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding And a handful of pie.

But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees. . . .
Happy eating to all - pass the cranberries please.

May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump,

May your potatoes 'n gravy
Have nary a lump.

My your yams be delicious,
May your pies take the prize,

May your Thanksgiving dinner
stay off of your thighs.
