We came to Grandma's and Grandpa's house
Where we gather together on Thanksgiving Day.
Some relatives traveled only for a few miles,
But some of them came from miles away.
We were so glad to see each other again.
We couldn't wait for the Thanksgiving feast.
There was a bright smile on each one's face,
From the very oldest to the very least.
Our grandpa carved that big juicy turkey.
Everyone came and and sat in his place.
Each one remained very quiet and still
While Uncle Bill loudly said the grace.
The laughter and talking resumed again
As delicious foods were passed around.
It was a very noisy Thanksgiving meal.
But it was a delightful and happy sound.
The big turkey was as tasty as always,
And the cornbread stuffing was the best.
The honey baked ham was very delicious.
The pumpkin pie passed the yummy test.
The table was loaded with other goodies,
Like veggies, salads, pies, and cakes.
Everyone tried the traditional fruitcake,
The best cake that Aunt Susan bakes.
After the Thanksgiving meal was over,
We remained at the table to pray.
We thanked God for all His blessings.
It was a delightful Thanksgiving Day.
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
