Promise of God 


            



Thanksgiving by Jeannie Nourse



The table is in the dining room…

All decked out in a pretty sort of way…

Waiting for the special guests…

That are coming here today….

Cornucopia 

The horn of plenty centerpiece…

Or Cornucopia as it is called…

All filled with fruits, veggies and grains…

Packed full and truly enthralled…

 

This day started oh so long ago…

With the Indians and pilgrims too…

Featuring corn, grains and venison…

And enjoying their friends so new…

 

So on this day we give our thanks…

To our God for all of his blessings…

Then it will be time to dig right in…

To the turkey and dressings….

 

It’s a time to be together…

To eat the turkey and then the pie…

To reminisce and enjoy the day…

To talk about days gone by…

 

All too soon it is over…

Until the very next year…

When once again we get together…

With family and friends so dear…
