Happy Thanksgiving

Gather around to hear the story

Not of the first Thanksgiving 

But of those who walked the perilous 

Pilgrim’s journey. 

Mighty men, strong women

All just like me and you

Who faced the odds with determination 

And their Heavenly Father knew. 

It wasn’t that they chose the path

Of trouble and of pain

But ordered by God to raise their children 

In honor of His glorious Name

They fought for freedom

Not with blood and sword

But with their lives all the same

For their children and their Lord. 

The story of the first Thanksgiving

Should your blood and zeal quicken 

And your faith thicken

As you hear of hardships long ago. 

Of crosses born, of graves dug

Of generosity and of unfailing love

As we eat our turkey and munch on our pie

Please remember the reason why. 

The reason to write an ode to Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all

~~Amie~~
