Share the Feast

Linda Soller | Nov 21, 2022

This week I share a poem written for the senior adult Thanksgiving luncheon at our church. It was a privilege to be asked to write something for such a special group of people. Unfortunately, my presentation followed the stand-up comedy of our 103-year-old member. She is pretty funny and a hard act to follow. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.




He said,


Come gather at the table.

There is so much to share.

The feast is set before you,

With grace and loving care.


Come sit and see the faces,

Of those so long away,

And smile to one another,

For such a special day.


Come speak of dreams and wonders,

Cast out your cares and woes,

Just focus on the friendship,

Of those you’ve come to know.


Come rest in the forgiveness,

That comes without request,

To each of you who gathers,

As My very special guests.


Come gather in thanksgiving,

Leave back your fear and dread,

Come share the feast of living,

Is what our Father said.          


Be the love in the world  : )   Linda
