“Give thanks to God.” – Psalm 100:4 

Thanksgiving is often a day of abundance.  So let us begin with a simple prayer of thanks.  Hopefully our minds and hearts will drift back to it, and help us find our center throughout this day.

May Nan Merrill’s interpretation of Psalm 100 from her book Psalms for Praying breathe life into you.

Sing a joyful noise to the Beloved all peoples of the earth!
Serve Love with a glad heart!
Join hands in the great Dance of Life!
Know that the Beloved of your heart is the Divine Presence!
Love created us, and we belong to the Most High; We are born to be loving, expressions of the Creator’s Divine Plan.
Open the gates of your heart with gratitude and enter Love’s court with praise!
Give thanks to the Beloved, bless Love’s holy Name!
For Love is of God, and lives in your heart forever, with faith, truth, and joy, not and in all that is to come Alleluia!  Amen!
