A prayer for the day after Thanksgiving

Today's prayer at the dinner table:

Dear Lord, we thank you for this food. We thank you for leftovers. We thank you that we get to live from this turkey for the next three weeks. We ask you for your guidance in not getting totally sick and tired of Thanksgiving leftovers and not wanting to use the turkey carcass as a doorstop in mockery of the bounty of your Creation. We ask you to forgive us for not packing it all in a big box and mailing it to starving people elsewhere in the world. And above all we pray for healing for our overstuffed gluttonous stomachs. All this we pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Happy Thanksgiving plus one, y'all.
