So much to thank Him for...

Oh, Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
Psalm 118:1

Thank You!

I look around at all the things
Within my life, my space,
Everywhere I turn my eyes
God's love has left its trace.

In my home - family
Each child picked with care,
Knowing through His goodness
God chose to place them there.

And looking further out
Are friends He made so dear,
Giving me the blessing
Of knowing them each year.

I take a walk outside
And hear a singing bird,
 Watch the clouds drifting past
Too softly to be heard.

Autumn's changing colors
Before the winters birth,
Leaves are gently falling
They dance their way to earth.

I feel the warmth of sunshine
between the cool soft breeze,
It seems to whisper praises
And all of life agrees.
