The day after Thanksgiving...
Forgive our over-indulgence, Lord,
and teach us not to take or waste
what's ours in abundance
or hoard the goods
that others so much need...
As we plan and shop for Christmas
make us grateful first for all we have
and mindful, then, of others' needs
and generous in the ways we open
hearts and wallets to the poor...
Help us find the deeper meaning
in the holidays ahead:
what is holy, healing, helpful,
all that makes us truly happy
in the gift you are for us...
