sharing Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving!  What a wonderful holiday! 
How fitting it is, Gracious God, that we have a day set aside
    to give thanks for all the blessings we have received.
Our ancestors declared a day of worship to celebrate 
    simply having enough to survive;
    we give thanks for bounty well beyond the necessities of life.
We are blessed to be among those who have not only enough,
    but enough to share.
We rejoice at your blessing, Maker of All,
    and pray that your spirit will lead us in an ardent effort
    to see that the whole world shares in your abundant gifts.
 
Walter C. Sutton

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

    Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
    his steadfast love endures forever,
    and his faithfulness to all generations.
