Thanksgiving

The heart dances with joy
There is much reason for thanksgiving
The stomach is full, and the heart is content
Last night was spent in a warm and soft bed

The days stresses comes from a planned tomorrow
Knowing of all the good that is to come
Not knowing how to accomplish so much
A full life, with nothing that wants removed

So much good to choose from!
Which good is the best?
Oh the challenges of being finite!
For the good is greater than the person

Seeing and hearing a new name
The name itself being a blessing
It is one thing to experience God’s gift
It is another to be named God’s gift

The heart dances with the wonder of a child
Filled with the spirit of thanksgiving
