Twas the Night of Thanksgiving

'Twas the Night of Thanksgiving"
Twas the night of Thanksgiving, But I just couldn't sleep. I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep The leftovers beckoned --- The dark meat and white, But I fought the temptation with all of my might. Tossing and turning with anticipation...... The thought of a snack became infatuation..... So I raced to the kitchen, Flung open the door, And gazed at the fridge full of goodies galore. I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes, Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes. I felt myself swelling so plump and so round, Till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground !! I crashed through the ceiling. Floating into the sky.... With a mouthfull of pudding and a handful of pie, But I managed to yell as I sored past the trees....... HAPPY EATING TO ALL !! PASS THE CRANBERRIES PLEASE !!

TODAY'S BIBLE VERSE: I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.
Psalm 69:30, New International Version
