Healing Holiday

Thanksgiving Day is just around the corner,
And I am set to have a lovely time.
First I’ll make a jaunt to church and, kneeling down,
I’ll thank the Lord for all His blessings kind.

And then I’ll journey farther to meet kith and kin.
We’ll hug and laugh and tell each other news.
Then next I’ll help dish up the yummy treats in store;
So many dishes, all from which to choose.

Then after eating more than I could ever need,
And going back again for one more pinch,
I’ll sit by fireplace warm and cuddle little ones,
And soon we’ll be asleep; it is a cinch.

Oh, my, how dear Thanksgiving is to all of us.
It gives us one whole day when we can part
From all that pulls and presses us and wounds us sore,
And give ourselves to healing, loving hearts.

  1. Would that all our Thanksgivings could be so ideal. I wish you the best of Thanksgivings, and hope the world can be a little kinder, even if for just one day. Thank you for your poetry. I really like the simple life it depicts…like a Norman Rockwell in words.

    1. As a great fan of Norman Rockwell, I consider that a very high compliment. Thank you. And yes, I agree. I was thinking even as I was writing it that part of the day needs to be spent in prayer for all those people who will be far from that kind of experience on this Thanksgiving.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
