Why Give Thanks

28 Nov

Some say that Thanksgiving is rooted in a fallacy
That the Pilgrims and the Indians didn’t necessarily agree
To have a meal on a day and celebrate with thanks
Nevertheless we have an opportunity to give thanks
You and me
For all or our blessings such as family
And freedom to be
Worshipers of the One True King, JESUS
Giving thanks for life, for health, for eyes to see
Another day draped in the Lord’s wonderful beauty of sky
Of ocean, day of fall bare trees, day near winter
On the ground, leaves of days gone past
A day to give thanks for the Lord’s great mercy
A day to bask in His great love
He was wounded for our transgressions
He was wounded because He loved
Us human beings full of selfishness, pride, and greed
Maybe you’re exempt
And this only applied to me
However I choose to thank Him for deliverance from my past
I celebrate with thanksgiving, free at last
Free to be who I am, who I was made to be
A creation in Christ’s image living to please
The King in thanks
