Thanksgiving

God,

We bless you for the gift of today,

for all our difference and distinction.

We bless you for each moment

filled with care and hope.

We bless you for the gift of yesterday,

for all our attention and awareness.

We bless you for each remembrance,

filled with trust and faith.

We bless you for the gift of tomorrow,

for all our input and impact.

We bless you for each legacy

filled with chance and love.

We want to have visions

and see what You see.

We want to dream dreams

and hear what You hear.

We give thanks for unintended consequences

We give thanks for enlightening realization

We give thanks for limitless possibility

We give thanks for communion

May it be so.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
