Thanksgiving Day 2008

For coffee with cream,

for little grey kittens,
for pumpkin pies
and apple ones, too,
for sons and daughters,
for faithful husband,
for clean water
and abundant food,

Father God, I thank you!

For cameras,
for computers,
for cell phones,
those electronic devices
that connect us with loved ones,

Father God, I thank you!

For new little lives,
for futures invested,
for long lives well lived,
for memories of loved ones,

for home,

for country,

for all the world,

Father God, I thank you!

For beach and ocean,
for mountain and valley,

for summer and winter,
for spring and autumn,

Father God, I thank you!
