Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a family festival, which is celebrated with much enthusiasm and joy in many parts of the world, especially the countries of US and Canada. People express gratitude to God on this day, for all the valuable things they posses in life. Near and dear ones are also thanked for their love and support. Feasting with family and friends is a very important aspect of this festival. In fact, it is also the most delightful part of this festival. The entire family comes together to offer prayers to the Almighty, before the Thanksgiving dinner and show their appreciation. Given below is a soulful prayer to be offered in honor of God.


Thanksgiving

By Ralph Waldo Emerson

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

 

************

I hope you all have a truly blessed Thanksgiving.

Stay safe and be happy!!

Beth

  23. What a beautiful Thanksgiving prayer! Our day was filled with things to be thankful for, one of them, of course, was having mom be able to move in with us! Small turkey, lots of left overs for the 3 of us - and everything that we might NEED.
