Thanksgiving 2019

November 28, 2019

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I am thankful for a warm place to live and for the wonderful meal Denise is preparing.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I think of all those who are food and shelter insecure.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I think back to the many places I have rambled and roamed.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I think of those who are caught in the middle of the horrors of war.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I think about the myth that surrounds American Thanksgiving.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I pray for forgiveness for the horrors perpetrated on the indigenous people who lived here first.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I think of families gathered around the table.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I think of those who are not welcome because of political and ideological differences.

As I look out the window at the snow I think of those who are banned from family and table because the family does not accept my LGBTQAI+ sisters and brothers as God created them.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I realize how far we have to go to build a kin-dom of love, justice, mercy, and peace.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I give thanks and I pray… I pray for peace and healing in this nation and world.

As I look out the window at the snow on the trees I offer all that I am and all that I have to you… Lord make me an instrument of your peace.
