Pumpkin Pie, Anyone?

Pumpkin Pie, Anyone?

I’m all “pied” out…
Cinnamon wafts its pungent sweetness
throughout the house
the baking warmth enfolds
a kitchen table
four perfectly baked pies
are cooling on the stove

It’s time to compose
some quiet repose
praise God with hands
rinsed of flour dust and sugar
the apron slung back
upon its peg
Beg the Lord His Blessings
for the coming
Thanksgiving Day…
Remember with gratitude’s
heart-felt attitude
God’s provision
for our lives.

And it matters not
the presentation
of the feast
a repast filled with
home-cooked delights,
it’s the love and hugs
and laughter
the honor of the Master
and hands that know
to lift Him above
the piled-up plates.
