Orange, yellow, sage, brown and mauve…..
these are the colors of fall that I love.
Pumpkins, leaf kicking, and costumes for fun….
gathering the family, yet missing someone.
Drying leaves and air so crisp….
the fog, the breath, the floating mist.
Goodbye swimsuits, beach balls and floats….
time now for mittens and those big bulky coats.
Hot chocolate, football, let’s cheer for your team….
Stuff the turkey, set the table, make wine glasses gleam.
Thankful each day for the shoes on our feet….
while praising the Lord for the food that we eat.
A blessing from Heaven, for all those on earth…..
for doing good deeds and proving their worth.
Our puppies, our kitty’s our parents our kids…..
Thank you dear Lord, for the reasons we live.
Teaching, learning and helping us grow….
to be better people from all that we know.
Forgiveness for the asking each day if we must….
remember our God, in him we can trust.
Be honest, be faithful, be giving and kind…..
be all you can be or you’ll be left behind.
Be thankful each day, morning, noon and at night…..
say your prayers often, and your future will be bright.
We shouldn’t just pray but one day in November……
but rather each day in the months through December.
Thanksgiving is coming, and Christmas is near….
we can all thank our God, for our living this year.
