Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
Let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise.

Thanksgiving

by Barbara Novack, Molloy College's Writer-in-Residence

Often "we are" too quickly becomes "we were"
as days run together, smudging life into a blur,
too many to-dos to ever be done,
our moments grabbed like coffee, always on the run.

And then the rushing year tips towards its ending,
the weight of holidays calendar bending,
but after the last fallen autumn leaves
and before lighted candles and decorated trees
as bare branches stretch toward earlier night skies
a particular November day arrives

a special day when we gather
the pieces of us busy life has scattered,
when we pause, recalibrate our attitude
and fill our souls with thankfulness and gratitude.
