Winner! November 2012 - Say "thank you" to the One Who gave us time.
|Not sure what to say,
can't fathom what to write;
I'm thinking, I'm trying but it all seems trite.
You have given so much,
I have returned so little;
I could give it all back,
and it would be but a pittle.
Minutiae I offer,
for Your delight;
My thanks, my praise,
all of my might;
Thanks for my car, my apartment, my future dog, and more;
Thank You, thank You, thank You, for all that's in store.
Thanks for the trials,
the tribulations, the upset;
thanks for the opportunities to get my feet wet.
Thank You for my future,
in which I have Faith;
Thank You for my past,
in which I was chaffed.
Most of all thanks for the present,
this gift You've bestowed,
on this a poor sinner,
many times I've been told.
Without being here now,
I couldn't sit at this table,
to write out my Thanks to You -- The Most Able.
