Giving Thanks/Defying Death

So on Thanksgiving, there we were, about 43 of us,

Some Abandoned by immediate family, some in chronic Pain,

Others in a fierce battle with deadly Cancer,some defying Death,

Who had descended unannounced to claim a young life,

So early, so mercilessly..and who would destroy them, too,

With crushing grief and loneliness.

And yet, still loving,laughing, celebrating,

Embracing the One who is our Salvation

In every hellish circumstance,

Knowing that nothing can separate us

From His love, we paused and

Gave Thanks.
