dear God ,I thank you for this day of eyes to see the sky

of life

For ears to hear the birds

For feet to walk among the trees

For hands to pick the flowers from the earth

For a sense of smell to breathe in the sweet perfumes of nature

For a mind to think about and appreciate the magic of everyday miracles


in the end for a spirit to be with joy at your mighty presense everywhere.

may God bless you
