Lord, this year I give thanks for many things that would not have occurred to me in prior years in the same way:
- For healthcare workers
- For technology that connects us safely (if not flawlessly)
- For scientists working on the COVID vaccine
- For all those who are holding our churches and congregations together
And most of all, for the abiding presence of Christ in our hearts and homes. I may not see my family and friends on Thanksgiving this year; but Jesus is at my table, under my roof, and always with me in prayer.
Thank you, Lord. Amen.
