Thanks Again


(ref: Luke 17: 11-19)

Ten lepers were healed

By Christ’s words that day.

He said, “You are new,”

And sent them away.

They danced and they sang

With their limbs now anew.

Showed friends their new health

And all they could do

One returned thanks,

The others took for granted;

But Jesus gave freely

His gifts not recanted.

Sorrows and distraction

Pull focus of our eyes

Pirating the gratitude

For blessings realized.

Lord, help me to be

The one of the ten

Who thinks to come back

and say, “thank you,” again.

-Terri Brady

May God bless you with much, and may you bless Him with thanks.

– Terri

Luke 17:17-19 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”

  1. Terri, Thank you for this gentle reminder and beautiful message. You and your family are definitely a blessing in my life. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Makes you stop and think, How many blessings do we receive from God that he gets no thanks for, that we take for granted, like being born in America, our freedom and even the water we drink, and the list goes on…Thanks Terri Brady for a beautiful poem ❤
