~ As I Look Out My Window,
This Thanksgiving ~

As I look out my window, this Thanksgiving
I see a child watching the snow fall from the trees
There are children going for a sleigh ride
If I walked in the park, all would be silent
And I could hear, if I listened quietly,
God talking to me

As I look out my window, remembering
I see a child, with brown curls down to her waist
A beautiful dress, with white stockings and black shoes
I was a little fairy princess
With a mother who loved me too

As I look out my window, this Thanksgiving
I see a countryside I have never seen before
There are horses, dogs to pet,
Birds singing in the trees
There are owls and deer in the distance
I love the life I see

As I look out my window, this Thanksgiving
I turn my head and think
This family must know what I would like to say
For the candle they put in their window,
Shows me where I come from and who I am
Then I can really see "God's Art" on Thanksgiving Day

I thank you Jesus for giving me
Something I wanted more than any gift could give
A new family and to live with all You created
As I walk upon life's path
This thanksgiving, I give thanks for the food
But, most of all, My Dear Jesus
Thank you for giving me your heart, so I can see, at last

Linda Ann Henry 2005
Do you remember me
The people's poet

If the only prayer you said in your whole life
was, "thank you," that would suffice.
~Meister Eckhart~

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
~J.A. Shedd~
