In the midst of a pandemic, racial unrest, and economic uncertainty, our three adult children (and one girlfriend with cat) came home. We spent our time together not just working but also doing puzzles, playing games, playing the piano, reading books, and planning meals. My husband and I often remark on how lucky we are to have kids who want to come home, and how much we all enjoy each other’s company. Our hearts remain heavy for the ones who do not share these blessings, yet we are so grateful for a home, and the love of the people who fill it.

Let Us Pray:

God,
we thank you for
the myriad and
simple blessings
that grace our lives.
Amen.

Perhaps you can list 2–3 things, people, or aspects
of your life for which you are thankful today.
