Childhood Thanksgiving Prayer

"My son, Steve, was in fourth grade when he wrote this prayer, and I've saved it to read at Thanksgiving," relates Nancy Sellers of Mattawa, Washington. "Now a grown man, he nearly panicked when I asked him to say grace, so I handed him his childhood prayer."

Thanksgiving is a time to say thank you for every day. For food that tastes so very good, and family loving the way they should. For friends who share with you each day; they will thank you in other ways. For the shelter over our heads, for the Bibles that we have read. For the food that we eat on Turkey Day—it's so sweet! For if we had no Turkey Day, there would be no more football today!
