In Thanksgiving

In Thanksgiving

by Br. Micheal, ofm

Each day is a new beginning,

an opportunity for us to encounter God’s amazing and steadfast love.

Each breath we breathe,

a reminder that our God is that close to us again and again.

Each step we take,

an opportunity for us to show forth love, kindness, respect

and the common good for all humanity.

Each task or job we do,

a reminder that we have unique abilities, skills and talents to share.

Each meal we share,

a moment of thanksgiving for our daily bread and the Bread of Life.

Each night,

a moment to be aware of the fullness of life, the demands and blessings

of the journey and to offer a hymn of grateful praise.


With grateful hearts let us remember we are a people of hope

today, tomorrow and forever. Amen.
