For the day AFTER Thanksgiving

'It's a good thing', to quote the omnipresent Martha Stewart, to give thanks to God on Thanksgiving. It is also important for our spiritual growth and personal awareness to give thanks every day.

May I suggest that you go to the two forms of Thanksgiving from the Book of Common Prayer 1979 [The Seabury Press] found on pages 836 and 837 respectively. Use them on whatever basis may be appropriate. Print them out. Put one up in your cubicle, tuck one into your billfold. Read them daily before your day begins, mid-day when you may be a bit short of gratitude, before the end of the day to put things in perspective. The capacity for charity grows when we practice gratitude.

May this discipline encourage you to invest more in your Christian life and witness. May it assist you in deepening your personal, professional and incidental relationships with others. May it deepen your relationship with your God. Amen.
