My word for this year is ABUNDANCE, and at this time of year our thoughts centre on thanksgiving for all that we have, but we are also confronted with a world that is destitute and longing for stability, safety, provisions, peace, and hope for a brighter future. I am so privileged, and do not want to take that for granted. My desire is to share of my abundance both physically and spiritually.


Morning by morning I come to you God,
 and it is so easy and so good to thank you 
for all the tangible elements in my life;
for all I see, and hear, and smell, and taste, and touch.

Forgive me that too often I forget to say thanks
 for all that is unseen;

For your angels that keep me from falling
 when I stumble over my clumsy feet,
I thank you.

For your hand that covers my mouth 
to silence hurtful words,
I thank you.

For your footsteps
that lead me along the path of obedience,
I thank you

For the shadow of your protecting wings,
I thank you.

For your still, small voice that prompts me to action,
I thank you.

For your tender arms that wrap around my sadness,
I thank you.

For your ears that are always open to my complaining,
I thank you.

For your eyes that look upon me your child with delight,
I thank you.

For your melodic voice that rejoices over me in song,
I thank you.

For your smile that encourages me to not to give up,
I thank you.

For your fingers that guide my own in creativity,
I thank you.

For your spirit that infuses me with joyful living,
I thank you.

My whole being is filled with your goodness.

Please accept my prayer of thanksgiving.

" From my soul, I will join the songs of thanksgiving;
 I will sing and proclaim Your wonder and mystery." 
Psalm 26:7
