Mrs Thankful gives a tiny feast

Image result for beatrix potter charactersThere was so much to finish before the guests arrived! Mrs Thankful hurried – seeing to this and that, tidying the table, stirring the lovely milk gravy for carrots and taters, then sitting down for a moment to rock the baby.

Mr Thankful had slipped out for last-minute shopping but would soon return – she longed to see him, for he would be sure to compliment her.

At last Mr Thankful arrived, leading others – but oh, so few… ? Mrs Thanksgiving – a near relation – followed behind him, with Mr Heartfelt and Mr Grumpy Guy who was so old he found it hard to do anything but complain about his aches and pains, or smile at the babies.

Mr Thankful had brought some fresh cheese crumbles and half a caramel apple studded with nuts. They gave thanks to Jesus and rested by the wee stove. Baby said “Ga!” and Mr Grumpy Guy smiled.

Will you be thankful too?

In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.

  1. I’ll say it again, WP needs a LOVE icon…

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving Day, Maria!
    (I’m thankful to Christ Jesus for all He did for my salvation and redemption so that I am able to be always thankful to God in all things!)

  2. Every day when I get in the car before I set off to work or a “longer” journey! I often feel we ask too much and do so little … and “He” keeps on …”delivering” time after time after time… un endlessly to all of us who ask. Ask and you shall receive. Luke 11:9
