Best holiday blessings offered to all

November 21, 2012
The Inter-Mountain

On Thursday, we will celebrate Thanksgiving. Many will spend the day feasting around a table filled with bounty and in the company of family and friends.

Others - such as members of the Randolph County Ministerial Association - will spend tomorrow in service. On Thursday, volunteers will host the group's annual community Thanksgiving dinner. It is slated for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Lounge. The free event is open to everyone, and it will feature a turkey dinner with all the trimmings.

No matter where one will spend the holiday, we offer the following blessing, which was written by Scott Wesemann and has been shared throughout social media and other online sources.

Its heartfelt sentiments and simple cadence resonate with us this Thanksgiving.

A Thanksgiving Day Prayer

Lord, so often times, as any other day

When we sit down to our meal and pray

We hurry along and make fast the blessing

Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing

We're slaves to the olfactory overload

We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold

But Lord, I'd like to take a few minutes more

To really give thanks to what I'm thankful for

For my family, my health, a nice soft bed

My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head

I'm thankful right now to be surrounded by those

Whose lives touch me more than they'll ever possibly know

Thankful Lord, that You've blessed me beyond measure

Thankful that in my heart lives life's greatest treasure

That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place

And I'm ever so grateful for Your unending grace

So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You've provided

And bless each and every person invited


From all of us at The Inter-Mountain, we wish you and yours a very blessed Thanksgiving Day. May your homes and hearts be filled with the joy of the holiday season.
