Happy Thanksgiving

By: nanette
For those outside the U.S.A., this Thursday is our Thanksgiving holiday.  Though I will feast upon turkey and other traditional fare this day, I am especially giving thanks for you, my readers.  For all of you who have commented, followed, referred, linked, or otherwise encouraged, inspired, or informed me: Thank you.  May you share in the plenty.

Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those who harvest them. Make us, we beseech thee, faithful stewards of thy great bounty, for the provision of our necessities and the relief of all who are in need, to the glory of thy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.   (Collect from the American BCP, 1979)
