Truth In Gratitude

Thanksgiving Traditions Hunt - Give Thanks
Truth In Gratitude
by Michael Doyle

It isn't just a thought
But the needed action
Acting in rightful gratitude
Brings its satisfaction

Thankfulness is the beginning
Of the truest gratitude
It's the fat chance that's thinning
Unless given in the right attitude

Struck as we are on life's tread mill
We follow our will... not God's will
There's a need for that action step
With mindfulness given on our breath

In all of our unclean moments
When we live through self made torments
There are lessons we are learning
Desperately needed in our discerning

It's here in our chosen bits of confession
That we think on what passes for progression
That has taken us from darkness into light
It's then we know that all will be all right
