2011 Thanksgiving Prayer & Poem

There's more to thanksgiving than eating turkey and stuffing once a year.  Everyday we wake up is a day to be thankful.   Jesus washed the feet of His disciples prior to His crucifixion.  This was a sign of love and humility.  Jesus death brought life to all of us.  His blood was offered as atonement for our sins; by His blood our minds, bodies and souls are nourished.  His blood makes us whole for His glory.  In all things let us count it all joy rejoicing at the sacrificial offering that was given to us through the precious blood of Jesus Christ. 
Let everyday be a day of thanksgiving.
As we open up our hearts and minds today to the realization that Christ died for our sins, let us rejoice in the goodness of this day.  This is the day the Lord has made.  A day to be thankful for everything around us.  Let us examine ourselves as God examines us so that we can be all that we are called to be.  Let our light so shined that the whole world will see.  Let us be thankful for this day and all that may come.  We rejoice in the fact that we have been blessed with another day of mercy, grace, forgiveness, redemption, salvation, deliverance and love abides.  Let us walk in love this day.
