For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. —Romans 15:4

Thankful: a poem

Colossians 2:6-8
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
 continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

A friend asked for thanksgiving posts for her blog. As I thought about the many people and things I’m thankful for, I composed an acrostic poem. I want to share that as my wish to you to have a blessed and peaceful Thanksgiving.

Thankful for:

Treasured time with my husband.  
Houseful of children—now grown.
Amazing grace—Jesus love.
Knowledge and wisdom.
Family— immediate, extended, church, work, friends.
Unconditional love from my dogs.
Lovable grandchildren.

And so much more. What are you thankful for?


  1. Love your list--especially the lovable grandchildren! We have so much to be thankful for.
