|last thanksgiving. my twin, carol is left, then dad, then me.|
for these i am thankful
as they land on my lamps
i'm reminded that i enjoy the american luxury
of uninterrupted electricity in my home
not too many years ago i wouldn't have eaten
even one cookie
three of us ate 44 lemon crinkles in 23 hours
shame didn't show to the party
it's our first thanksgiving without him
but my gratefulness runs deep to have had
forty-three years of his wit and wisdom
isaiah's words are my weapon
as i stave off the sad of loss and the fear of future
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
What are your thankfuls this week?
