Giving Thanks

It's not often that my prayer practice and my daily reading of the comics practice collide. In fact, I don't know if that has ever happened--until now.

Each day this week Patrick McDonnell, creator of the comic strip Mutts, drew only one frame. The scene changed each day, but the written message was the same.

"If the only prayer you say in your life is thank you, that would suffice."
---Meister Eckhart

A reminder that prayer has a meaning outside of any religious beliefs. The power of prayer is in its simplicity and its ability to unite us all.
