WHEN GIVING THANKS

Think of how to make peace the motto of every nation
Harbor the destitute, even in tarnation
Admit love free entry without hesitation
Never forget those who sacrifice on our behalf, the one at his lonely station
Kneel in awe of creation
Submit to the will of the Creator, seek His good estimation
Grant freely the gift of love, art, and oration
Indulge the child in all you encounter, make laughter contagion
Visit joy upon the needy in any region
Instruct with patience and truth in every interaction
Need the company of family and friends, cherish each relation
Give thanks for every day of life and its bounteous blessings, relish benefaction.

  1. I'm not normally a fan of rhyming, but this flows so well with such a good message about the true nature of the season. Yes, this is what it's about. Excellent!
