So Much to be Thankful for…

Somedays we forget to look around us
Somedays, we can’t see the joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give
So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us, to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for
Look beyond ourselves
There’s so much sorrow
It’s way too late to say, I’ll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
We’re so long overdue
So for tonight we pray for

What we know can be
And everyday, we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us, to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for
Even with our differences
There is a place we’re all connected
Each of us can find each others light

So for tonight, we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day, we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us, to be the change
And even though this world needs so much more
There’s so much to be thankful for

Lyrics of Josh Groban song

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful

Colossians 3:15 (KJV)

I cannot think of a better way to end 2020 than to give my readers the gift of a song by Josh Groban. The year 2020, much vilified, and its ending so anticipated, was still another year of life and opportunity that was given to us. Being thankful in all things is the mark of faith and maturity. Yes, we all fail at those virtues at times, but let’s find ways to be thankful for 2020.

Please give a listen to the song whose site is found at the end of the blog. It is well worth it, and it will uplift your spirits, I trust.

Happy New Year, and blessings on 2021!

  1. Perfect song for ending one year and looking ahead to another. I have that cd. Love and peace for 2021. Have you seen the saying “remember it’s 2021, not 2020 won!”? Happy new year❤️
