I Give Thanks

 

For the prayers of the faithful, written for us in moments of inner struggle, I give thanks.

For the music of men and women who write simply and from the heart, to heal the hearts of others, I give thanks.

For those who tirelessly seek the face, the will of God, even when I have not, I give thanks.

For those who extend a heart of welcome to all in need of empathy, I give thanks.

For the ones who refuse to compromise in the face of injustice, I give thanks.

For the ones who taught me to love generously, fight the lies of scarcity, and continue in adversity, I give thanks.

For all who live with eyes and hearts and doors wide open, reminding me what life is truly to be lived for, I give thanks.
