Grateful for another evening met, let us breathe in thanksgiving and breathe out words of praise. Grateful for another day where trials were met and troubles endured, we pray for strength to carry on and still give thanks for the strength and blessings that carried us thus far. Grateful for another day where there was an easy breath or a moment without pain or a few warm minutes or a smile shared, we name and give thanks for the blessings we have known and pray for everyone to be blessed. Grateful for another day where we were called to bear one another up and to bear on, called and answered yes, we give thanks for the way of transforming love that has room and need for us all. May we carry on, giving thanks, finding our songs and hearts of praise, and risk faithfully now, this night, and every day. Amen.
