What’s in Today’s Mail?


The mail carrier brought no first-class mail today. Coupons, fliers, catalogs came instead. How will I deal with it? 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. I will be grateful I can order what I truly need.


New call-to-action
