Thanksgiving Harvest Reflection

Here is a thanksgiving prayer from the Vision 4 Life website.

Harvest Reflection

Harvest of memories
As farmers view their crops,
weigh up the growth and likely yield,
so in this quiet place
my mind seeks patterns
in the landscape of my life.

Growth at times has come
both strong and fruitful;
else when the harvest time has
brought a sparse return
of small and bitter grains.

Plentiful and lush,
dry and meager—
the years have passed
until once more I pause
to sing of
‘All good gifts around ...’

... and with experience fed
by all life’s varied harvest times
my thanks is honest, deep and true.
