The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana -- On The Record-- SECRET The secret of thankfulness Things haven't been the same/Since you came into my life/You found a way to touch my soul/And I'm never ever gonna let it go By CHARLIE MARTIN i REFRAIN Happiness lies in your own hands/It took much too long/To understand/How it could be Until you shared/Your secret with me/Some- thing's coming over/Something's coming over/Something's coming over me/My baby's got a secret You took me back to the paradise/That I thought that I lost for good/You helped me find the reason why/You took me by sur- prise/That you understood/You knew all along What I never wanted to say/Until I learned to love myself/I would never ever love anybody else REPEAT REFRAIN TWICE Written by Madonna/Dallas Austin Sung by Madonna Copyright (c) 1994 by Sire Records Co. At first hearing, Madonna's "Secret" might not seem like a song for Thanksgiving. Sure, the song contains lots of good advice for increasing happiness in our lives, but how does this tie into Thanksgiving? If you follow this column you know I would agree that "happiness lies in your own hands." And indeed, I have previously stressed the song's secret that "until I learned to love myself, I would never ever love anybody else." These are important spiritual truths. When practiced, they are likely to bear results that provide us with many reasons to be grateful this Thanksgiving. However, we seldom learn these truths on our own. Rather, gifts of love from others reflect back to us our eternal goodness. Their gifts are a reminder that we carry vithin us the image of our Creator. Likewise, learning to take responsibility for our own happiness is sometimes gained by ob- serving what other people do. to the same realization. Thanksgiving invites us to ask: Who me learn and practice these secret truths? I tell these people how important been for me? By letting others know what you have from them, you return their kindnesses. In fact, you magnify the power of the secret that little by little, person by person, the human ily is being changed. One wa: to do this is to note to these special people. Most of our lives are busy with bilities. It takes extra effort to write card and tell how another's actions have us during the past year. But even if you are able to do this with person, the result is that the secret is a den and more able to heal our world. Thanksgiving is a holy day. Somewhere m tween the turkey, the family gatherings and celebrations, take time to mirror bac their gifts of love and support mean to your life.
