For the beauty of the earth,
For the glory of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild.

For Thy Church, that evermore
Lifteth holy hands above,
Offering up on every shore
Her pure sacrifice of love.

Lord of all to Thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! We have so much for which to be thankful! We'll be singing this song around our dinner table, tomorrow. Hope everyone has a blessed day!
(yes, Daniel is missing, again. That kid! It is so hard to get all 8 together, these days.)

Oh my! They're all growing up so much...looking so mature and totally *into* what Big Bro Joe is looking at. There is no longer an Abe the Babe...he's growing so! How's Evabeth doing?

Happy happy Thanksgiving, Nines! Lots of love and hugs to you from me, sweet friend! I'm so thankful for you! ;-)

That is one of my favorite hymns. How neat that you sing it on Thanksgiving!

I hope that you had a blessed wonderful day with your loved ones!

Your feasts are wonderful. Simply wonderful.

Btw, have you ever rented a movie called (I think) Adrienne? It's a great family movie worth seeing.
