A THANKSGIVING DAY PRAYER
"Faith of our fathers" renew us again
And make us a nation of God-fearing men
Seeking Thy guidance, Thy love and Thy will,
For we are but Pilgrims in need of Thee still---
And, gathered together on Thanksgiving Day,
May we lift up our hearts and our hands as we pray
To thank you for blessings we so little merit
And grant us Thy love and teach us to SHARE IT.

Thanksgiving - All in a Word
T for time to be together, turkey, talk, and tangy weather.
H for harvest stored away, home, and hearth, and holiday.
A for autumn's frosty art, and abundance in the heart.
N for neighbors and November, nice things, new things to remember.
K for kitchen, kettle's croon, kith and kin expected soon.
S for sizzles, sights, and sounds, and something special that abounds.
That spells THANKS ~ for joy in living and a jolly good Thanksgiving!
