Happy Thanksgiving

                                      

                    A Thanksgiving Prayer

 

  

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings each morning, thank you, Lord, that I can hear.  There are many who are deaf.

Even though I keep my eyes tightly closed against the morning light as long as possible, thank you Lord, that I can see.  There are many who are blind. 

Even though I huddle in my bed and put off the effort of rising, thank you Lord, that I have the strength to rise.  There are many who are bedridden.

Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned, and tempers are short, thank you Lord, for my family.  There are many who are lonely. 

Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced, thank you Lord, for the food we have.  There are many who have no job.

And Lord, when I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day, please help me remember the gift of my life.

  5. The graphic is wonderful, and the prayer is a joyous one.    I hope you and John have a wonderful Thanksgiving at home.    I am sure Micheal the Cat will be thrilled and looking forward to his Thanksgiving feast,  lol !    I am having ground chuck with onion, fresh garlic, and jalepeno mixed in for me.    A friend of mine just wants some onion mixed in with his.    It will in my covered BBQ using pecan, apple, peach, and mesquite charcoal and briquettes.    I have it cooked slowly for several hours and it will be delicious.    It is going to be about 60 degrees today with the warm weather staying for awhile.      mark
