My Thanksgiving Prayer - 2020
This has been a most challenging year for us. Despite the pandemic and the quarantine, I found things to keep me occupied.
I thank you for giving me the time to explore...
I thank you for the brave first responders and the essential workers who continue to do their jobs while we stay safe in our homes.
I thank you for all the medical researchers who work long hours to develop these vaccines that will save millions of lives.
I thank you for the trees, the beaches, the mountains and the rivers and the lakes that gives us so much pleasure and relaxation during this stressful times.
I thank you for our friends and family members who reached out to keep us sane.
I thank you for the music and arts and books and videos to keep us entertained.
I thank you for the joy that is in all of us.
This Thanksgiving is extra special. I thank you for life. Despite all the challenges we face, and the road blocks and the heartaches, it is worth living.
I thank you for your blessings which continued to be placed upon our nation and our leaders.
You are the alpha and the omega.
