Not Just on Thanksgiving Day

by Deborah Ann Belka

It's not just on Thanksgiving,
that we're to be thankful
it's not only on this one day
that we're to be grateful

It's about being appreciative,
every day in every way
it's all about our attitude
in all the things, we do and say.

It's not about the tasty food,
on today's white linen table
it's not about the fine dining
on Thanksgiving Day staples.

It's about the provisions,
God gives us, all year through
it's about how we receive them
what with them, we opt to do.

It's not about what we have,
and all our many blessings
it's not about the pumpkin pie
or the turkey's oyster dressing.

It's all about us sharing,
with those who have not
it's all about loving others
in deed, not just in thought!

2 Thessalonians 1:3

“We are bound to thank God always for
you, brethren, as it is meet, because
that your faith groweth exceedingly,
and the charity of every one of you
all toward each other aboundeth;”
