yes, I've posted this before, and yes, I'll post it again, for I think it is a lovely and perfect prayer for this day of giving thanks...
Thanks and Blessings be to the Sun and the Earth
for this bread and this wine,
this fruit, this meat, this salt,
Thanks be and Blessing to them
who prepare it, who serve it;
Thanks and Blessings to them
who share it
(and also the absent and the dead).
Thanks and Blessing to them who bring it
(may they not want),
to them who plant and tend it,
harvest and gather it
(may they not want):
Thanks and Blessing to them who work
and Blessings to them who cannot;
may they not want--for their hunger
sours the wine and robs
the taste from the salt.
Thanks be for the sustenance and strength
for our dance and work of justice, of peace.
~Rafael Jesus Gonzalez
Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving to all...
