A Lewis Family Thanksgiving 2014

IMG_5192Thanks Be To God

I do not thank thee, Lord,
That I have bread to eat while others starve;
Nor yet for work to do
While empty hands solicit heaven;
Nor for a body strong
While other bodies flatten beds of pain.
No, not for these do I give thanks!

But I am grateful, Lord
Because my meager loaf I may divide;
For that my busy hands
May move to meet another’s need;
Because my doubled strength
I may expend to steady one who faints.

Yes, for all these do I give thanks!
For heart to share, desire to bear
And will to lift,
Flamed into one by deathless Love–
Thanks be to God for this!
Unspeakable! His Gift!

–Janie Alford
