Here Comes Thanksgiving Day

We know there’s a reason for this day in history,
We learned about those Pilgrims and Puritans in school; 
To refresh ourselves with the history here’s a site to see: 

So, let’s plan a family feast and family fun for this season,
Yes, but it’s time to thank God for His blessings!
Sometimes being busy makes us forget this lesson; 
Let’s not forget gratitude is the reason. 

Put honesty to God in your November prayers,
Every day we should remember the LORD,
His Word tells us He loves us, He really cares.
This is definitely a message each of us shares.  

Not just formal words at a fancy dinnertime,
Prayer is a thoughtful habit to cultivate;
So, every day can be a thanks giving time,
Reminding you is the real purpose of this rhyme.
