Happy Thanksgiving From S.E.S.

Happy Thanksgiving

Praise and Thanksgiving Prayer

Dearest Lord,

Thou fairest, greatest, first of all objects, my heart admires, adores, loves you, for my little
vessel is all full as it can be, and I would pour out all that fullness before you in ceaseless flow.

When I think upon and converse with you ten thousand delightful thoughts spring up, then thousand sources of pleasure are unsealed, then thousand refreshing joys spread over my heart, crowding into every moment of happiness.

I bless you for the soul to you created,
for adorning it, sanctifying it, though it is fixed in barren soil;
for the body you have given me
for preserving its strength and vigour,
for providing sense to enjoy delights,
for the ease and freedom of  limbs, for hands, eyes, ears that do thy bidding;
for the royal bounty providing my daily support,
for a full table and overflowing cup,
for appetite, taste, sweetness,
for social joys of relatives and friends,
for ability to serve others,
for a heart that feels sorrows and necessities
for a mind to care for my fellow-men,
for opportunities of spreading happiness around,
for loved ones in the joys of heaven,
for my own expectation of seeing you clearly.

I love you above the powers of language to express, for what you are to your creatures. Increase my love, O my God, through time and eternity.

From The Valley of Vision
