“To be grateful is to recognize the love of God in everything He has given us—and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him.” Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude 

Thanksgiving offers us the special gift of time that is dedicated to pausing from the busyness of the world around us to celebrate the gift of God’s love that permeates every moment of our lives and of the whole of His Creation. It is thus a unique opportunity for us to spend a joyful day living gratitude for those abundant blessings. I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving Day spending time with God and those you love, and abundant days of gratitude for the grace of His ongoing love in your lives!
