Giving Thanks

We feasted and dined
And had a fine time

The children performed well
Caused our hearts to swell

Many games we played
Pleasant memories made

Hearts full of mirth
The happiest on earth

Now the company has left
The house is a mess

Candles burning low
Give the room a lovely glow

Thanks be to God above
For a life warmed with His love.


  1. Dear Lindafay,
    This poem is so cute!
    I am so glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  2. I can't believe I didn't mention the banner! The banner is just so sweet! My kids love it too!

  3. You're a poet! What a fun family record you are creating in this blog!

  4. Linda,
    Your Thanksgiving banner turned out so cute! :)
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    We did this banner and it went great! We gathered things from our site and went to work. Even my 2 year old participated fully. I had such a good time with all of the kids working together. Normally, the crafts will exclude someone in a group.

    Even my Turkish in-laws liked it! They are hard to impress!

    Many Blessings,

    Tammy Gun

  6. Thank you!

    Tammy, I'm so glad you made it. We really enjoyed making this too. It was so easy to make. I hope all of you had a lovely Thanksgiving Day!

  7. Lovely poem and creative banner!

    I wish we had a celebration that meant so much to the people of our country!
    Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

  8. Beautiful, Linda. What a sweet poem! I had many warm thoughts of you and your family on Thanksgiving Day.

    I "jumped off" from your blog last night into the Christmas crafts links. Thank you for the next round of ideas!
