There is not much more that can be said this day.  It is a day for giving thanks and enjoying those gathered in our homes.  It is a time to pray for those less fortunate and those not able to be with family for whatever the reason.  All week long a hymn has been running through my mind as I prepared our celebration.  I believe it says it all.

Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done, in Whom this world rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts and blessèd peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace, and guide us when perplexed;
And free us from all ills, in this world and the next!

All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given;
The Son and Him Who reigns with Them in highest Heaven;
The one eternal God, whom earth and Heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.

As the Pilgrims were grateful for the blessings they had survived I am grateful for all the blessings in my life.   If you are reading this you are on the blessing list!  Happy Thanksgiving to all where ever you may be.
