been productive. Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire ... it means that if you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Dear Lord, on this Thanksgiving Day.
We offer thanks to you
For all the lovely things on earth;
For dawn when day is new;
For gold of falling autumn leaves;
For starry midnight sky;
And most of all for those who grow
Most dear as years pass by
Who listen when we want to talk,
Who always understand,
Who know when we need cheering up,
Who lend a helping hand.
Dear Lord, for all your gifts we bow
In gratitude, and pray
That you will bless the ones we love
On this Thanksgiving Day.
