How the Grumps Stole Thanksgiving

How the Grumps Stole Thanksgiving

Ever had the holiday blues? One day you're happy and enjoying the holidays, the next you feel like destroying everything in your path? Today the grumps got in my way. They stole my thanksgiving attitude. But a little time with Jesus can change anything.

Lord I’m feeling grumpy
oh how can this be?
Yesterday was so wonderful
but today my thoughts are stuffy
I’m grouchy and I’m cranky
what happened to my attitude
of thanksgiving and gratitude?

Deck the Halls

Deck the Halls

Have you made room in your heart for Jesus yet this Thanksgiving?

. . .make it ready, find some room
come close to the manger,
God’s special gift, just for you.

Cookie Cutter Thanks

Cookie Cutter Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving to my readers, family, and friends. Thank you for sticking with me through these 30 days of Thanks. And thank you to all who have shared each post.

I don’t want a cookie cutter day with cookie cutter graces
I don’t want the same shapes and conversations
I can’t think of anything more perfect than a day of rest
creating memories in a hope-filled chest.

A Place for You

A Place for You

It's so hard to give thanks to God when our hearts are cluttered with impure thoughts and actions. May we seek God with clean hearts and hands this Thanksgiving.

Create in me a clean heart oh Lord
ready to meet You Thanksgiving morn
with a space for grace and a heart of thanks. . .

Wise Men Three (Are you still seeking?)

Wise Men Three (Are you still seeking?)

Have you ever been thankful for those who have gone before us, seeking Jesus? If they hadn't, would we know about Him today? Maybe, maybe not. From Abraham to Paul and even to our recent ancestors, their pursuit of God is what has led us to God. So, today I am thankful for all those who have walked this journey before us and lead us to Jesus. Are you still seeking Him?

If wise men still seek Him
I wonder how far
we will go seeking
our One True Star?

This is the Air I Breathe

This is the Air I Breathe

If you have asthma, you know how hard it can be to breathe sometimes; especially when trying to clean the house. I'm so thankful God gives us His breath to breathe every day. Without Him, we could not live and be a vessel for Him.

I asked you to help me breathe
breathe through the dust and debris
keep my lungs free, give sweet relief
to the chaos of the messes I’ve made. . .

Under the Old Oak Tree

Under the Old Oak Tree

Today's poem is a thankfulness for memories. For love. For devotion. For friendship. For life.

Under the old oak tree
roots that grow deep
strengthen the land
holding its hand.

Under the old oak tree
a worn bench sits
waiting its turn
to nurture friendship. . .

A Heart of Thanks

A Heart of Thanks

I love the idea of Thanksliving. This is living each day with an attitude of gratitude whether we feel like it or not.

. . .Thanksliving is daily seeking the good
A time to pause and sit with the Lord
Brings joy to the weary, troubled soul
A heart of Thanksgiving brings a greater Thanksliving. . .
