With all the hustle and bustle of living life I almost completely forgot that Thanksgiving day is nearly upon us. I've got to get some new sweatpants ;-) I am thankful for sweat pants. I am thankful for our unusually casual Thanksgiving dinner which allows me to remain in my sweats all day. I am thankful for Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. And I am thankful for my little man, James, who upon seeing the Rockettes perform last year, stated matter-of-factly, "Mommy all those kickers forgot their pants."
Now thank we all our God
Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done, in Whom this world rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.
O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts and blessèd peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace, and guide us when perplexed;
And free us from all ills, in this world and the next!
All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given;
The Son and Him Who reigns with Them in highest Heaven;
The one eternal God, whom earth and Heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.
Martin Rinkart 1636
