A Time of Thanksgiving

As we all take time to celebrate with friends and family, I took a moment to capture some thoughts in a poem.

A Time of Thanksgiving

It only comes once a year, a time to stop and see

All the things around you that fills your heart with glee

Like loved ones who come by to share all that is dear

To sample turkey, peach cobbler, pecan pie, oh the words we love to hear

It’s also a time for games and watching sports on TV

Or kicking back, relaxing and taking time to just “Be”

Or reflecting on all that the Lord has done and being grateful for his love

And remembering his amazing grace that continues to come from above

But no matter what you do, try to love from the heart

Because on this day and any day, that’s when the real fun starts!

Have a blessed day,

Michelle L. Bowers

I am a wife, mother of three, poet, author, teacher, and speaker. The first ministry God has given me started at home with my husband of 27 years. We have grown up together and become dear friends over the years. The Lord added three kids to the ministry, Elijah, Nehemiah and Amaziah. They have blessed us beyond measure in so many ways. We pray that we will be examples of the kingdom who they will want to always follow. In addition to family ministry, for the last 20 years I have taught Language Arts in private, public and home school settings. Throughout my years of teaching, God has given me a sincere heart for teachers. Therefore, I am on a divine mission to help the world appreciate and support teachers. It is an honor for me to encourage teachers by using the knowledge, skills, love of poetry, experience as a teacher that the Lord has given and match it with wisdom from the master teacher, Jesus Christ. I had the privilege to express some of this wisdom in my book entitled, “The Unforgettable Teacher’s Journey.” In this book I write about the truth of the miraculous ministry of Jesus to encourage and inspire teachers in their journey. Each chapter paints a beautiful picture of how the journey of a teacher is remarkably similar to the ministry of Jesus. Teachers will be inspired by the eloquently crafted biblical truths as well as the peaceful poetry that is strategically positioned throughout this book. I pray that all that I do, whether in family or public ministry, be a blessing to those who hear it!
