Thanksgiving 2010

For the blessing of looking forward to a dream coming true,
and for friends who share it with me,

For the abundance of food . .much more than we need,
for the table and a family to feed,

For peace in my heart and for grace from above,
your forgiveness freely given with love,

For examples around me that spur me on,
encouraging, honoring, and kind,

For good men in my family who do love their wives,
holding their children, with pride,

For the girls in my family who make their homes warm,
and lovingly care for their children each day,

For my grands who have life and energy to run,
their arms opening wide in love,

For friendships and family who take precious time,
in sharing this life that I live,

For health and for passions that you alone give,
for hope and a purpose to live,

For the land where I live, with freedom to be,
safe to express love to thee,

For all this and more than I  imagined or dreamt,
My thanksgiving of  praise is for you.

Thank you Lord Jesus.

To all of you.  .. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving . . .

See you Monday . . .for more on those dreams!

all for now .. .
