This year
may our Thanksgiving not be small and rote.

This year
may our thanks giving be broad and deep.

May it fill to overflowing
every cell in our bodies,

So that each exhaled breath
may be carried by the Holy Spirit

And laid gently upon all things and all persons.

This year
may all things and all persons
feel loved
by God and by our Thanks Given.
