Thankful for the Simple Things
As I sit in my favorite chair ready to praise my Lord
I begin to think of all I am thankful for.
Some things quickly come to mind,
Like food, clothing, shelter and family times.
But what about the simple things we take for granted each day?
Like this quiet time I take to pray;
The hot cup of coffee sweetened to taste;
And the precious luxury of a warm, inviting place.
The precious times we’ve had with family and friends,
And the meaningful, loving, conversations with each of them.
For our Church family that is spread across many miles.
And the wonderful touches from God that causes hearts to smile.
As I write down my thoughts of all I’m thankful for,
I see there are countless blessings I have received from my Lord.
Soon I get ready for our big day planned to prepare,
Our feast of thanks of God’s provisions shared.
A Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings….my diet is to be crashed
But also I am thankful to know my family loves me even if I’m fat!!!
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD,
and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
