As Sailor Curt put so well, giving thanks is a regular occurrence, not one you have to wind up (apologies to J. Tull) on Thanksgiving Day.
We’re not big on "sayin’ grace" & such around here, but when family gathers on T-Day, I make an exception:
"Father, we give thanks for the abundance of
food on our table, the company of
family, & the comfort of our Republic.
Please accept our thanks, and prayers
for those who cannot be with us today.
Look upon us & bestow on us your good grace.
Happy Thanksgiving Day all.
You too, and for the record, Two Years Before the Mast was a great book- your comment on my blog has got me jonesin' to reread it!
Happy Turkey Day to you and yours, DT.
My prayer for the day is one handed down to me by Papa G.:
"Rub-a-dub-dub, thanks for the grub, yay G-d!"
rtb..get any good books to read over the holidays? any sequels?
