Thanksgiving Community Poetry Project

Will you join me in giving thanks?
Each day this November I will construct one line of thanks.
I will try to remember my English class teaching notes about poetry being a jumble of picture words pushed through a trash compactor…highly concentrated and infused with emotion.
I would love for you to include a line of thanks in the comment section.
At the end of the day, I will rearrange our lines into a group poetry.

Will you sit at the Thanksgiving table of grace with me?
Let’s create something beautiful together
A community of gratitude,
A working of His Spirit,
A re-telling of the many graces which make us

  1. I LOVE this idea!

    I am grateful for a Savior who provides, walks through the storms with me, comforts when I need it, and when I fall, catches me on a pillow of grace.

    (I could go on and on, but will stop with that:)

  2. Well, what the hey, guess I can throw my 1 cent in- sorry, can’t afford 2 cents! 😉
    (Ahem.) I am grateful for the dancing collection of electrons that turn photons into smiles, tears, and the wonder of my blogging friends.

  3. Mom: active mind and body, she challenges and embraces. I’m so glad I have her still with me, and she cares enough to take Amtrak to see me all by myself, without all my siblings vying for her attention. I am blessed.
