The mail carrier brought no first-class mail today. Coupons, fliers, and catalogs came instead. How will I deal with them? Review, clip, recycle, ignore, respond?
I lift up my mail to you, my God.
I thank you for the businesses who want my attention,
for the services that have been offered,
for the announcements of events where I live.
I thank you that my needs are simple.
I thank you for helping me resist the urge
to order from each colorful catalog.
Lead me to make good choices.
I will recycle what I do not need today. I will be grateful I can order what I truly need.
