Thankful Ebenezer Tradition (Golden Tags)

by C D D © 2023

Each year, 'bout now,
I start a list
of thankful times.
(you get the gist)

It starts off small
then grows to vast
as I peruse
the year gone past.

In Giving Thanks
we sit to eat,
pray for the food,
eat! Then repeat…

…the lists we've made,
round one by one,
'til every list
is fin'ly done.

Then we record,
like glory flags,
each single "thanks"
on golden tags.

Attaching each,
upon the tree,
with ornaments
for all to see.

A covered tree
with lights and gold,
so silently
each story's told.

Then when we're done,
it's fin'ly time,
to take each tag
and all combine.

We write the year
then seal the bliss,
again, next year,
we reminisce.

Year after year,
with burdened bough,
these tags give praise
to God, and how…

…He's graced our lives,
and met our need,
and, yes, next year
we will proceed…

…to once again
proclaim, accrue,
and pray your tree
is golden too.
