Thanksgiving, Prayer & Jesus - Poem by Tom Zart
It's a time of plenty and a time for prayer
A time for families to gather and share.
It's a time to remember those pilgrims past
A time to celebrate life, while it last.
As we bow our heads around the table
With turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie.
Before we feast we’ll thank our Lord
For the blessings of the year gone by.
There is some good in all of us
Which may not show at first.
With good character of heart and soul
We prepare ourselves for the worst.
God may place us in deep waters
But He doesn't wish us to drown.
Difficulty shows us ourselves
As to others we smile or frown.
There's no better teacher in life
Than the hardships which come our way.
Adversity strengthens our minds
As we think what to do and say.
Thanksgiving brings us closer to Jesus
When He is the source of our every need.
When we count on God and trust His will
We overcome foulness, temptation and greed.
