  • (Note: This is my annual Thanksgiving psalm.)

    Holy God,

    Where do I even begin to tell you how grateful I am that you, God of all creation, should stoop to bless my life?

    I am deeply humbled, aware of my unworthiness and your great mercy. Thank you seems puny and insufficient, yet it's all I have to give you.

    Thank you, Lord, for capri pants and Gerber daisies. For thick, warm towels fresh from the dryer, "two-point" tapioca pudding and pumpkin marmalade.
