Good morning to you. This is Thanksgiving week and I’m sure most of you are busy with
Preparations. For me everyday is a day of thanksgiving, I am so very thankful for my family and friends as well as my church family but most of all so thankful for my saviour Jesus Christ. Without his sacrifice on the cross I would be doomed but now my hope and salvation is in him alone. What a glorious life everyday is with Jesus. I will be working retail again this year and from today until Saturday I will be very busy. Except of course Thursday. The retail place I work fortunately is closed all of Thursday. A blessing! I want to share with you a poem I wrote many years ago. I hope you enjoy it and it blesses you.
Forest of Love
In the wonder of the warmth, I stand in all my Glory grounded in richness,
Anchored in strength and clothed in the beauty that comes from within. The
Essence of my created form reaching to the heavens in an expression of praise
To the one who created me.
It’s in this season that the thickness of my nature hides life with-in, it is fed
Nurtured, protected and multiplied.
It is during mid-life that the beauty of my nature comes forth. I am arrayed
In the natural wonder of earthly color. The life with-in is preparing for the
Next stage of life.
It is at this stage that I stand bare before the world. My stature comes in many
Different forms. Tall and lean, short and round, bold and mighty. The life with-in
That has been so well hidden in my youth now stands exposed to all.
My glory and beauty that once waved praises to my creator, now lays blanketed
At my feet in solemn silence. My life is stilled for a time of rest, only to come
Vibrantly back to life-bearing testimony of my creator.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all may every day be a happy thanksgiving to our Lord Jesus! Blessings!
