"Thanksgiving To Me"


What a time of the year to say "Thanks to Him!"
Thanks to those wonderful Friends.
Thanks to those lives that touched ours in the past,
But have gone to meet Jesus, now "Home at Last".

We could say Thank you a million times you see,
But never could we reach that goal,
Set by our Wonderful Savior that day on Mt. Calvary
Worth more to us today than silver or gold.

Thanksgiving time is a time to profess,
To loved ones and friends.
Get it all right, bury the past,
Learn that Love and Understanding endures to the end.

Say kind words of happiness and cheer.
Make this a habit, hey, all through the year.
Praise God each day of your life.
Oh yes, it's the killer of strife.

Your Father and Mother, give them a hug.
Your Children, my what a gift!
Friends are precious, so don't shrug.
Tell them you Love them, pass on the gifts.

Now, as you gather Thanksgiving Day,
Give Thanks and Praise to our Father God.
And when day is over,
The Memory - The Path Which He Trod.....
