While COVID has forced us to celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday a little differently this year, there is still much that we have and for which we should be grateful. This small prayer can help us focus.
THANK GOD FOR LITTLE THINGS
Thank you, God, for little things
that often come our way-
The things we take for granted
but didn’t mention when we pray-
the unexpected courtesy,
the thoughtful, kindly deed-
A hand reached out to help us
in the time of sudden need-
Oh make us more aware, dear God,
of little daily graces
That come to us with “sweet surprise”
from never-dreamed-of places.
