Year-long Thanksgiving

30 11 2011

Each Thanksgiving, I used to teach my second grade students this poem (below).

Feel free to share it with your children as a way of celebrating a year-long Thanksgiving. Perhaps it’s timelier to teach this poem during the weeks leading up to Christmas. It may help to shift the focus from the materialism of the holiday to the reason for the season: Christ’s birth.

A Talk with Jesus

Thank you, Heavenly Father,

For blessings great and small

But more so for my Savior

The greatest of them all.

 

There are so many blessings

I often fail to see

Many times they’re in disguise

Yet mean so much to me.

 

Thank You, blessed Son of God,

For loving me so much.

It does not take Thanksgiving Day

For me to keep in touch.

 

But I admit it’s mighty nice

To have a special day

For all the faithful to unite

In gratitude to pray.
