Give Thanks


Here it is the first of November
The month when we give our thanks
For all we've been given in the past
We should give thanks no matter our ranks

Thank God for always being there
Thank Him for His every grace
And try to return His love
Let Him know, he'll always have a place

Thank our soldiers for serving so well
Both present as well as in the past
For with out them being here
Our freedoms just wouldn't last

Thank your spouses by your side
Standing by you in good times and bad
Through your times of joy
As well as those time that where sad

Thank your friends that have been there
When you where in times of need
With their hands and hearts out to you
Never asking for anything back through greed

Yes thank God for all of this and more
Thank Him for the kids and grandkids too
Be thankfull while there is time
Because before you know it, it can be through

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
