As night draws near, I want to be sure I haven’t wasted the day. I want to remember what’s important. The beautiful words penned by Grace Nowell Crowell come to mind…
Because I have been given much, I too must give;
Because of thy great bounty, Lord, each day I live;
I shall divide my gifts from thee
With every brother that I see
Who has the need of help from me.
Because I have been sheltered, fed by thy good care,
I cannot see another’s lack and I not share
My glowing fire, my loaf of bread,
My roof’s safe shelter overhead,
That he too may be comforted.
Because I have been blessed by thy great love, dear Lord,
I’ll share thy love again, according to thy word.
I shall give love to those in need;
I’ll show that love by word and deed:
Thus shall my thanks be thanks indeed.
My most sincere thanks to each of you for stopping by today. May your holiday season ahead be full of continued thankfulness, hope, and joy.
I’m joining the Thanksgiving party at Between Naps on the Porch.
It’s Tablescape Thursday!
