Grateful Gatherings…Thanksgiving

November is the month to give thanks for so many things: a family’s love, nature’s abundance and the joyous offerings of generous friends… I’m so delighted to join in with an amazing group of Bloggers brought together by Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home as we share our homes and decor prepared for our own grateful gatherings for Thanksgiving.

We are Grateful

We are grateful for the joy of being able to celebrate with family and friends. Thanksgiving is a beautiful time to reflect on the blessings of the year. This is a time to demonstrate our gratefulness for the simple blessings, for the gift of fellowship and for the joy of being with our loved ones.

Special placesettings set for loved ones at Thanksgiving on A Delightsome Life

Come Ye Thankful People

Come, ye thankful people, come,

Raise the song of harvest home;

All is safely gathered in,

Ere the winter storms begin;

God our Maker doth provide

For our wants to be supplied;

Come to God’s own temple, come,

Raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field,

Fruit unto His praise to yield;

Wheat and tares together sown,

Unto joy or sorrow grown;

First the blade, and then the ear,

Then the full corn shall appear:

Lord of harvest, grant that we

Wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come,

And shall take His harvest home;

From His field shall in that day

All offenses purge away;

Give His angels charge at last

In the fire the tares to cast;

But the fruitful ears to store

In His garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come,

Bring Thy final harvest home;

Gather Thou Thy people in,

Free from sorrow, free from sin,

There, forever purified,

In Thy garner to abide;

Come, with all Thine angels come,

Raise the glorious harvest home.

come sit at our table and gather to enjoy the blessings of the Thanksgiving season on A Delightsome Life
