T H A N K S G I V I N G D A Y ~ An Acrostic


T   THANKS  be to God for His blessings we pray  

H   HARVEST  provision for our families each day

A   ALL  things we need God's rich hand does provide

N   NEEDS  are all met when we stand by their side !

K   KINDNESS  is shown to the people in need

S   SUFFICIENT  for all hungry people to feed

G   GOD  sends the grain the sun and the rain

I    KNOW  from experience again and again  !

V   VOICES  we raise to our Creator's praise

I    INVOKING  our praises  for harvest's rich grain

N   NOTHING  feels better than sharing our bounty

G   GOD'S blessing abroad through each State and each County !


D   DON'T  just rejoice in your own little corner 

A   AS  you sit down to share in you favorite chair

 Y   YOU  who have plenty share your food with the POORER !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Happy Thanksgiving  BRIAN


 TAHNKSGIVING is a uniquely American Feast !  If you'e never shared one

in an affluent American Home or a downtown Church with three turkeys to

feed 120  Urban Poor you haven't lived ~ enjoy the DAY ~ Love BRIAN XOX

  • Comment from author about the poem: The first Thanksgiving Meal was 400 years ago (1621) between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians at Plymouth. In 1887 the White House had the following menu: Oysters ~ Chicken soup ~ Turkey ~ Mash ~ Squash ~ Onions ~ Parsnips ~ Chicken salad ~ Venison en croute ~ Pumpkin pie ~ Mince pie ~ Charlotte russe ~ Ice cream ~ Jelly ~ Nut cake ~ Cheese ~ Fruit and Coffee. The meal I had at a Friend's in Atlanta Georgia a few years ago was not much different. For many Americans the Thanksgiving meal is more important than Christmas Dinner. Perhaps in the UK we should start a BREXIT Thanksgiving Day for liberation from EUROPE ! Thanks for reading ~ Love BRIAN XOX

              You must have worked very hard on this because its amazing! Thanksgiving acrostic is all in rhyme and the authors notes alone are remarkable. I didn't know what they ate at the White house in 1887! I always love your acrostics but I especially love this one! hugs in spirit--Christina

                Welll CHRIS ~ You know I am a perfectionist and I always like to do a bit of research. The US ex-pats in the UK always celebrate Thanksgiving but it's not the same as celebrating it in the USA ! Have a lovely Thanksgiving with all your Family ~ Big spiritual HUGS ~ BRIAN
