Thanksgiving, 2014

There is much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day. First and foremost, if you are reading this you are alive, and just being alive is cause for celebration.

Behold the beauty of the storm
The sunlight glint on crystal snow
The friends and kin that keep you warm
A late night fire’s dimming glow
A glass of wine, a book to read
Soft music lulling off to sleep
Someone to love, that’s all you need
The memories you’ll always keep
The faces of those gone before
The kindnesses you can recall
That friendly knock upon the door
As friends pour laughing down the hall
A life is full of highs and lows
We see the sunlight turn to gray
But then the dawn, a golden rose
As we begin another day
God gives us all the space and time
To make of life just what we will
A purposed life or pantomime
It matters not, He’s with us still
