++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Gracious God,

thank you for all blessings,

especially the mundane ones.

When we enjoy a good book, thank you.

When the car starts, thank you.

When we have enough to eat, thank you.

When we can pay our bills, thank you.

When we have all we need, thank you.

When we travel safely, thank you.

When someone tells us bad puns and good jokes, thank you.

When a day passes uneventfully, without difficulties and with only minor annoyances, thank you.

Indeed, we are quite fortunate–perhaps more than we know.

Thank you.

May we become more attentive to the great extent of your graciousness,

and thank you accordingly with our

attitudes,

words,

and deeds.

In the name of the Holy and Undivided Trinity.  Amen.
