Jesus took the bread, blessed and broke
“Take and eat; this is My body.” (Mathew 26:26)
Jesus took the cup, gave thanks and said
“Drink from it, all of you.” (Mathew 26:27)
Disciples did as was told by Jesus
“devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship,
to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts: 2:42)
This is how the tradition continued,
people followed and stayed aligned.
Merry making and heartfelt conversations
exchanging gifts and embracing touches.
Symbolic of holiday and coming back home
celebrating togetherness and reminiscing memories.
Turkeys and pumpkin pies make a dinner to feast
but anything shared together with the ones you love is a treat.
Sip the wine and share the bread
Pray, bless and be thankful
Thanksgiving is a gesture to be felt and experienced.
