for what will be

Thanksgiving Day, 2020

The obligatory
“I’m Thankful”
for what is
and what has been;
today, seems tired and forced.

No mistake –
I have plenty,
I am grateful,
and while I hate
the word:

“Blessed”

I am.

Choose today to
consider
“why”
we are blessed.

Cliché,
but paradigm
shifting…

Blessed –
that
we
may
bless
others

So, I give thanks, today
and all days,

For the blessings
you
and
I
will
be.


John 13:12-15
New Revised Standard Version

12 After he had washed their feet, had put on his robe, and had returned to the table, he said to them, Do you know what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord—and you are right, for that is what I am. 14 So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.
