Gratitude is normally a sentiment allocated for Thanksgiving Day. If it were up to me, I would celebrate Thanksgiving every day.

Each of us care especially about what our professors have to say. We want them to be impressed by our ideas, so that we might come away with a strong letter of recommendation or a reference. We’ve spent a lot of time coming up with good questions and comments to talk with them about in office hours—I know I have. The question I want to raise is this: Have you ever put this much thought into what you’ll talk to God about?
