Thanksgiving Prayer

I liked this and want to share. It's from the Dear Abby column in today's paper. For my own spiritual place, I'd exchange "heavenly Father" for something less personified, and less gender specific. But the meaning is clear, and a good one.

Everyone, have a safe and good holiday!

Oh, Heavenly Father,

We thank thee for food and

remember the hungry.

We thank thee for health and

remember the sick.

We thank thee for freedom and

remember the enslaved.

May these remembrances stir

us to service,

That thy gifts to us may be

used for others. Amen.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
