In this time of true thanksgiving,
I stop to think of how I’m living.
Most days in pain, and not just physical.
Slightly grumpy is too often typical.
I do too little, though I take on too much.
I fall too short, or some other such.
In family, I’m the weakest link.
I shudder to know what my friends think.
But Jesus came and offered me grace.
So forgiveness is mine in this crazy race.
And forgiveness does truly abound.
From family and friends it can also be found.
So I’m truly thankful in this season.
And true forgiveness is the biggest reason.
