Thankful

I want to be thankful,
Eat my turkey,
Enjoy the pie,
And stuff myself dizzy...
The table quivers--
Weak beneath our treasure
While just down the road
Bent over in pain
Swollen in hunger
And shivering in rain,
You stand alone.
Homeless--helplessly watching
A parade of unfinished meals
And a food artists'
     Architectural mastetpeice?
So the food falls hallow,
Tasteless in the pit of my stomach
Until we all sit here,
Fat in thanksgiving.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
