A Thanksgiving reflection

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with good company and plenty of laughs, and tons of good food.

The following prayer was shared through my work and I loved it so much I wanted to share it here.

During this Thanksgiving holiday, let us ponder these beautiful words of Rev. Samuel F. Pugh:

O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry
When I have work, help me to remember the jobless
When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all
When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer
And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency
Bestir my compassion, and be concerned enough to help
By word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted.
