I came across an old poem while working on Thanksgiving show prep.
It's a good reminder for today, tomorrow and all year long.
How to Celebrate Thanksgiving (Unknown)
Count your blessings instead of crosses;
Count your gain instead of losses.
Count your joys instead of woes;
Count your friends instead of foes.
Count your smiles instead of tears;
Count your courage instead of fears.
Count your full years instead of lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of mean.
Count your health instead of wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.
I pray that your Thanksgiving is chock-full of reminders of God's grace throughout the past year.
