Thanksgiving Day....

"Come, Ye Thankful People, Come"
                                  
                                          by Henry Alford (1810-1871)

                "Come, ye thankful people, come,

                         Raise the song of harvest home.

               All is safely gathered in,

                        Ere the winter storms begin;

                God, our Maker, doth provide

                        For our wants to be supplied;

                 Come to God's own temple, come.

                        Raise the song of harvest home!"

  3. If it wasn't for Black Friday tomorrow (dreadful moment for a salesman), I would not have remembered Thanksgiving. In Canada, we celebrate it in October.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving, Sister! I am happy to be at a computer that will cooperate with me, finally! We have had a delicious meal and are just now about to attack the desserts, since our meal has had a couple of hours to digest. I hope your day has been wonderful all around!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving Nellie. I'm giggling because I almost put the same song lyrics at the top of my post yesterday. We have good taste!

  7. Hi Friend, Just stopping by to say Happy Thanksgiving to you. Even in places where Thanksgiving is not celebrated (or celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November like ours is) —it can be a time for each of us to take time to thank God for our blessings and also not to forget the “Giving” in the word, ThanksGIVING. We all have lots of blessings —but many times, we ignore the giving part….Not just on Thanksgiving Day, but all of the time, please take time to contact family/friends just to say HI… And remember that a big SMILE can lift someone’s day…. Little things like that can really HELP..

    God Bless…
    Happy Thanksgiving.
    Hugs,
    Betsy
