I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry: Why I Give Thanks

I give thanks
Not for trouble and tragedy,
But for a Savior
Who walks that path with me,
Holds my hand, and
Offers comfort, strength and peace.

I give thanks
Not for a world in turmoil,
But for a living, caring God
Who’s got me in His hands,
Provides a reason to hold on,
Go on and even rejoice.

I choose to give thanks,
Knowing when everything falls apart in my life,
I will turn and find,
Wholeness, help and hope,
In the arms of my loving Lord—Jesus Christ.
And that is why I give thanks.
