Christian Poems : by Pearl Sturgis


 Pearl Sturgis : Resident Poet for this Blog 



THANKSGIVING PRAYER
WE GATHER TOGETHER
THIS TIME OF THE YEAR
TO THANK GOD FOR BLESSINGS...
FOR JOY AND FOR TEARS.

FOR DAWN FOLLOWS DARKNESS 
AND SUN FOLLOWS RAIN. 
MISTAKES ARE OUR LESSONS 
FOR BETTER TO CHANGE.

LORD HELP US TO KNOW 
WHAT IT MEANS TO FORGIVE 
AND HOW TO BE THANKFUL 
EACH DAY THAT WE LIVE.

TO FEEL AS A FAMILY
TO WORK AS A TEAM.
TO KNOW WHAT THE WORDS 
OF APOLOGY MEAN.

TO GIVE IT OUR BEST
WHEN THE PATH SEEMS SO ROUGH; 
TO KEEP RIGHT ON TRYING 
AND KNOW THAT'S ENOUGH.

TO STOP AND CONSIDER 
WE'RE ALL PRONE TO FLAW;
TO REACH OUT OUR HAND; 
BUT OUR HEART MOST OF ALL.

WHILE SOME CHOOSE TO FOLLOW
AND OTHERS TO LEAD...
TO WALK SIDE BY SIDE
IS THE REAL THING WE NEED.

SO KEEP US IN MIND, LORD.
WE'RE THANKFUL TO THEE,
TO LIVE AND TO WORK
IN THE LAND OF THE FREE.
