Let us give thanks


O Divine Gift-giver, I stand beneath the endless waterfall of your abundant gifts to me. I thank you especially for the blessing of life, the most precious of all your gifts to me. I thank you, Ever-generous One, for clothing to wear, for food and drink to nourish my body, for all the talents and skills that you have bestowed upon me. I thank you for the many joys of my life, for family and friends, for work that gives to me a sense of purpose and invests my life with meaning. I thank you as well for the sufferings and trials of my life which are also gifts and which together with my mistakes are among my most important teachers.

Grant that I may never greet a new day without the awareness of some gift for which to give you thanks. And may constant thanksgiving be my song of perpetual praise to you.
