Thought: Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
The end of another school year is a good time to look back and reflect on the things we can be thankful for. The friendships we have made or deepened the knowledge and understanding we have gained. There are probably so many things we could give thanks for that we could not even begin to list them. .
Give us courage, Lord, to stand up and be counted, to
stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves,
to stand up for ourselves when it is time to do so.
We thank You Father for the blessings of love and life; for our intelligence and learning.
May we always use them in the service of others.
Strengthen our faith in You so that doubts will never overcome it.
Grant us a hope that will ensure that we see beyond the hardships we will face and give us a love that is sincere.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
Father, Your loving hand guides us powerfully yet gently every moment of our days.
Give us the gift of the same loving kindness,
that we may treat everyone with love and respect, today and every day
