Celebration of Thanksgiving
in the United States
1 Corinthians 1:3-9
Thanksgiving Day, 2012, what am I thankful for?
I’m thankful for the gift of faith, for love and so much more. . .
I’m thankful for a husband, who loves me oh so much;
For food and shelter, light and warmth, for sight and sound and touch!
I"m thankful for our children – such gifts from God above;
For all the times we get to share and celebrate our love!
For Mass, God’s Word, for living faith; for walking in the Spirit;
For hope and joy and God’s sweet peace; for mercy with no limits!
For beauty all around us, for the blessing of this day;
Each breath we take a gift from God, we never can repay.
But most of all to know the truth that Jesus paid the price;
He conquered death and rose again and we will never die!
Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!
