Thanksgiving Challenge 2016 Thursday: Feasts of Giving
Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude for Abundance, Family, and Friends. During the Holiday season, we often think of our families or the lack of family and friends. How blessed is a person who has one at least to call family or friend? In the Spirit of Peace that ushers in the time of year, the following is a poem and the last entry into the Thanksgiving challenge of 2016.
Open up your hearts now and then to others who may not have active family and friends with whom to meet and revel in and be that to them in the end--family or a friend--adopted kin.
The Autumn of each blessed Time
The fa - mi - ly hearts meet to dine
Upon the cherished love Divine
We enjoy the Feasts of Giving
Faces shining full of wonder
Loving sounds echo like Thunder
Hugs from children Aunties plunder
Happens at the Feasts of Giving
Gratitude shown in circled prayer
Holding hands, Thanks for all who's there
Blessing food--amens everywhere
To begin the feats of Giving
Following feasts, we say farewell
Kissing kinsmen our hearts do swell
Our memories will never pale
Of the thoughts of feasts of Giving
