Pause and Give Thanks

At this time of giving thanks across the land, I thought I would share some words by singer/songwriter Carolyn Lynn Schwartz. Have a blessed Thanksgiving, and remember the greatest Gift of all.

old thanksgivingPause and Give Thanks

Wherever you find yourself today, 

whether filled with joy or wrapped in pain, 

remember to pause a moment and give thanks—

For no other event in our history and time, 

Can change our lives like the birth of Christ – so divine. 

His love never failing, and His Presence always near 

The greatest wonder in Heaven on Christmas did appear. 

God’s gift full of grace that brings life, love, and hope, 

Can be unwrapped by us all – changing life’s scope. 

For when we invite His life into our hearts, 

No love is greater than that He imparts. 

So wherever you find yourself today, 

Remember to pause and give thanks, 

For He is the Truth and the Way!
