Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

Lord, so often times, as any other day 
When we sit down to our meal and pray

We hurry along and make fast the blessing 
Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing 

We're slaves to the olfactory overload 
We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold 

But Lord, I'd like to take a few minutes more 
To really give thanks to what I'm thankful for 

For my family, my health, a nice soft bed 
My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head 

I'm thankful right now to be surrounded by those 
Whose lives touch me more than they'll ever possibly know 

Thankful Lord, that You've blessed me beyond measure 
Thankful that in my heart lives life's greatest treasure 

That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place 
And I'm ever so grateful for Your unending grace 

So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You've provided 
And bless each and every person invited
