A Bit of Writing: Part 5: Spoken Word Poetry: Thankful

Snoopy being the chef makes me smile and reminds me I am thankful for my family, friends, and the military especially at this moment. We who live in America are blessed to have more than enough in many, many cases. I also have a wonderful mother, sister, and fur-niece ( a Maltese-Poodle puppy) named Reilly. I also have many wonderful uncles, aunts, and cousins for whom I couldn’t be more thankful at the moment. 🙂 And friends….so much blessing. Thank You, God. 🙂 You are more than enough, and I am humbled and blessed to know more blessings besides. 🙂 Wow. Thank You, God – again.

Hey everyone,

As promised, I am writing something for tonight (and, again, it is a work in progress, as sometimes inspiration comes at moments one does not expect, such as when one is tired and has no idea what to write.) Oddly enough, the inspiration came from my own previous writings, as God reminded me through a previous post that I have much to consider and thank Him for. After all, it is Thanksgiving week, so here it is as I am writing now:

I have so much, more than enough

That I consider how blessed I am; I have too much/

At least I feel I need to give much away,

But then again, I will when comes the day./

God has a plan for me, I know, for I exist,

And He makes nothing for which He has no purpose./

What is more, I am saved and redeemed

And have an incredible family, friend group, and country./

Moreover, I get more than enough daily to eat

And have clean water to drink, clothes to wear, and a place to sleep./

Thank God, I can sleep every night that passes by in peace

For He gave us men and women to protect and keep America free./

As I write, I find myself beyond words once again, indeed,

For I have more than enough to live well- certainly more than adequately./

That said, I have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, and every day.

May it be that I am thankful each day, I pray.

Thus, may God open all of our eyes, our ears, minds, and hearts/

To be thankful for every day we have at its beginning, whether we wake in light or dark.

Yes, I will now look on every day with new eyes

No matter what happens, when I live and the day I die/

I know my Redeemer was, is, and is to come

And for me, Him and His blessings besides are more than enough.

What are you thankful for, by the way? Let me know in the comments! God Bless!

– Michelle
