Lord God, today I am grateful
for the gifts that you bestow.
They are different from a year ago
when mobility, activity, social life
were full and energizing.
These days, my gratitude is for the basics.
That there is food, and shelter and neighbors
Life is slower during this pandemic but
there is plenty to appreciate among
the blessings shown each day.
May we be increasing aware of God's
goodness and blessings
even in times of change and scarcity.
Let us make this prayer in Light
and Peace of Jesus Christ
