Thanksgiving Blessings to You!



I wanted to take a moment to wish all of you the most blessed Thanksgiving Day! We will be eating at Tryg's - where Shane works - so that we are able to spend the day with him. I hope you all have a day are filled with special moments with family, lots of closeness, and great food!

Here is a Thanksgiving poem that I like, and I thought I would pass it on to you with my wishes.

Thanksgiving Day Prayer
Lord, so often times, as any other day
When we sit down to our meal and pray
We hurry along and make fast the blessing
Thanks. Amen. Now please pass the dressing.
But Lord, I'd like to take a few minute more
To really give thanks for what I'm thankful for.
For my family, my health, a nice soft bed
My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head.
I'm thankful right now to be surrounded by those
Whose lives touch me more than they'll ever possibly know.
Thankful, dear Lord, that You've blessed me beyond measure
Thankful that within my heart lives life's greatest treasure.
Thank you, dear Jesus, as you reside in that place
And I'm ever so grateful for Your unending grace.
So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You've provided
And bless each and every person that we have invited.
Amen! -by Scott Wesemann
