"Fill Your Heart With Thanksgiving"

Take nothing for granted, 
for whatever you do 
The 'joy of enjoying' 
is lessened for you

For we rob our own lives 
much more than we know 
When we fail to respond 
or in any way show 

Our thanks for the blessings 
that daily are ours...
The warmth of the sun, 
the fragrance of flowers, 

The beauty of twilight, 
the freshness of dawn, 
The coolness of dew 
on a green velvet lawn, 

The kind little deeds 
so thoughtfully done, 
The favours of friends 
and the love that someone 

Unselfishly gives us 
in a myriad of ways, 
Expecting no payment 
and no words of praise

Oh, great is our loss 
when we no longer find 
A thankful response 
to things of this kind,

For the JOY of ENJOYING 
Are found in the heart 
that is filled with THANKSGIVING.
