Happy Thanksgiving
by Jim Gordon | November 30, 2021


O give thanks to the Lord, for God is good; God’s steadfast love endures for ever! Psalm 118:1. 

Otherwise by Jane Kenyon 

I got out of bed on two strong legs. 

It might have been otherwise. 

I ate cereal, sweet milk, ripe flawless peach. 

It might have been otherwise. I took the dog uphill to the birch wood. 

All morning I did the work I love. 

At noon I lay down with my mate. 

It might have been otherwise. 

We ate dinner together at a table with silver candlesticks. 

It might have been otherwise. 

I slept in a bed in a room with paintings on the walls, 

and planned another day just like this day. 

But one day, I know, it will be otherwise.
