grateful for blessings in our lives
Psalm 116:12 prays, “How can I repay the LORD for all the great good done for me?” This Scripture
verse is one that is repeated in various ways throughout the Old and New Testaments. It is also the prayer
of saints and it should be our prayer as well.
Every day is cause for gratitude in our lives. However, the approach of the end of another school year
brings with it a particular spirit of thanksgiving for the innumerable blessings that have been a part of it.
Last week I had the privilege to accompany Bishop Malooly on three school visits to our southern schools.
In just three days in three schools, I could fill a notebook with the many blessings of people, events, pro-
grams, and successes that were shared. Let us take the opportunity of the close of this school year for our-
selves, our colleagues, and our students to spend some time naming our school year blessings and giving
thanks for them.
