Happy Thanksgiving

God’s love
Radiates when
Attitudes of gratitude
Take over all thoughts
Instantly replacing
Tense nonsense;
Underlying worries
Disappear and
Eternal peace reigns

Sometimes when the 'I wants' have overtaken all of the 'I needs' we forget we already do have so much to be thankful for. These days, a roof, warmth and food in our tummies is being blessed more than we even imagine as others go homeless and hungry.
A lovely piece from you Laurie.

I always loved the phrase attitude of gratitude. :)
And now I love the tense nonsense. I think I need to remind myself that that is exactly what it is.
