Thanksgiving Poem by Charles A. Waugaman

Thanksgiving Complete

Father, I wish to praise You for the whole
of life. Besides these blessings obvious
and bright with benediction for the soul;
beyond intangibles that comfort us
when doubters cower under circumstance
and faithless people cast all hope on wealth;
even before the graces that advance
our comfort, pleasure, family and health,
I would give thanks for pain, displeasure, fear,
reversals that avoid the cul-de-sac
of pride, anxieties, and every tear
that draws me near through prejudice or lack
to Your forgiveness. Surely all is good
that leads me into doing what I should.

Charles A. Waugaman (1932 – 2010)
