my large print Bible
rests on the Thanksgiving tray
the bread of life

*

late November
sun fills a glass
for a time

*

John 6: 35 (KJV):  And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life:  he that cometh to me shall never hunger: and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

I rediscovered acrostics when I began blogging some time ago.

We began Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin, our first site, in December 2009.  I am so grateful for this way to create and share – for your kindness and support.

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.  He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.  Psalm 126: 5-6 (KJV)

Thanksgiving Complete – 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)
