As we celebrate thanksgiving let us all not be forgetful of our responsibility to this Universe and to our children and grandchildren.  We owe it to the them to foster peace, unity, harmony and love.    Let’s make thanksgiving an act of selfless living, not only on this day but every minute of every day of our lives.

We were created like the stars.  We are the combustion of sheer matter which dissipates with time.   Our legacy is the gifts we share with all of humanity. We are the keepers of this Universe. Our survival depends on our humanity.  This life is not tangible, it is a mirage, here today, gone tomorrow.

THE DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING…

The day before Thanksgiving,

Many are early leaving…

Almost a ghost town—

Tomorrow shut down—

Office staff generally earliest leaving!

The normal parade of faces,

Mostly joined the races…

Stop and go

Crowded and slow,

Fit into car-sized spaces.

The occasional employee says,

In earnest, “Happy Holidays”…

Culturally

The company,

Is sensitive to other’s ways.

The guard echoes back,

Whatever is said in fact…

Diplomats

Avoid ugly spats,

By how they speak and act!

–Jonathan Caswell

UNKNOWING (?) BETRAYAL

Knowing after the facts,

Friends hurt by our acts…

Felt betrayed

By what we said,

Compared to the actual facts.

Pleaded for medicine money,

Then bought a dress==that’s rummy—

Used it elsewhere

Like we didn’t care,

Taking advantage by cunning.

I also help refused,

In getting our funds better used…

Said I’d do

And no follow-through,

My counselor felt abused.

Seeking forgiveness a must,

But says nothing about regaining  trust…

Reality this is—

We’ve  burned our bridges—

They’ve had their fill of us!

–Jonathan Caswell

Oh Lord, Remember!…by Carl Gooch

O Lord Remember
Mighty your power, great your faithfulness
You’ve come to dwell in this sinner’s heart
You have granted peace, love and mercy
And nothing or no one can tear us apart.
Each day Lord, remember
Remember how I need you,
Remember your promises true.
Remember your child
Yes, remember me. O Lord, remember
Your grace and mercy
Your grace is all the more
Your grace and mercy covers me.
Endless is your lord, just are your ways
You work in the weak to show the strong
Your love point the way to salvation
And your Spirit shows us right from wrong.
 –
Each day Lord, remember
Remember how I need you,
Remember your promises true.
Remember your child
Yes, remember me. O Lord, remember
Your grace and mercy
Your grace is all the more
Your grace and mercy covers me.

PLUS SIZED CLOTHING

Articles of clothing “PLUS”

Must be worth extra fuss…

A price increase

Of two dollars at least,

Since my wife asked me to by thus—!

She says fabric costs more,

And extra tailoring for…

Bodies real—

More sex appeal—

Not of sizes zero to four!

“PLUS” is a very good thing,

I married one who loves to sing…

Ample love

From God above,

She’s my world—worth everything!
