Thanks for the Little Things
As I sit in my favorite chair getting ready to praise my Lord;
I begin to think of all I am thankful for.
Some things quickly come to mind,
Such as food, clothing, shelter, and fun family times.
But, what about the simple things taken for granted each day?
Like this quiet time I have to pray.
The hot cup of coffee sweetened to my taste;
And the precious luxury of a warm, inviting place.
What about all the times spent with family and friends,
And all the meaningful, loving conversations with each of them?
I am also thankful for our Church family that spreads across many miles,
And all the wonderful revelations that causes my heart to smile.
As I write down my thoughts of all I’m thankful for,
I see there are countless blessings received from my Lord.
Soon I must get ready for our big day planned,
So my family can partake of God’s provisions prepared by my hand.
A Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings….my diet is soon to be crashed
But also I am thankful my family loves me even if I’m fat!!!
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praise
unto thy name, O most High:
