Happy Thankgiving!

May you and yours be blessed this Thanksgiving. We are thankful for each of you.  I am also thankful for the family God has blessed me with, our home, and our health.  God has certainly blessed us through this year of change.

Giving Thanks
For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,
For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,
For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,
For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the trade and the skill and the wealth in our land,
For the cunning and strength of the workingman's hand,
For the good that our artists and poets have taught,
For the friendship that hope and affection have brought --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the homes that with purest affection are blest,
For the season of plenty and well-deserved rest,
For our country extending from sea unto sea;
The land that is known as the "Land of the Free" --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

  1. I love that poem! My husband was asking on Thanksgiving if there were any Thanksgiving hymns or songs, but there seem to be so few (and we're already tired of "Christmas" music since they've been playing it in stores since October.) That poem should be set to music.

    I wanted to invite you to stop by my blog to help me celebrate. I just published my homesteading book and am so excited! I just want to tell the whole world. :)

    1. Thank you for visiting and HOW exciting that you now have a book out! I enjoy your blog and I bet the book is just as amazing!


Thank you for taking a few moments to share your comments with me. It means a lot. Thank you!
