Thanks for the Little Things
As I sit in my favorite chair ready to praise the Lord,
I begin to think of all I am thankful for.
Some things quickly come to mind:
Like food, clothing, shelter and fun family times,
The simple things we take for granted each day,
Like the allotted time we take to pray,
The hot cup of coffee sweetened to taste,
The precious luxury of a warm, inviting place,
The fun times with family and friends,
And the meaningful, loving conversations with them,
For Church family that spreads across many miles,
And messages from God’s Word that causes hearts to smile.
As I write down my thoughts of all I’m thankful for,
I see countless blessings received from the Lord.
As I get ready for our big day planned,
When our family partakes God’s provisions prepared by my hand;
A Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings….my diet is to be crashed
But also I am thankful God and 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:
