Thank you for all that you have created and given to us.
Thank you for the sun, the moon, the stars, and especially Jesus.

Thank you for our beautiful marbled earth, and the birds that fly.
Thank you for the universe that we can only marvel at so far beyond the sky.

Thank you for the trees, the grass, the flowers, and the gift of light.
Thank you for the seasons, a twenty-four hour day, so we can rest at night.

Thank you for the snow, the wind, the hail, the fire and rain.
Thank you Lord for the hope we have in your heavenly domain.

Thank you for the different kinds of animals that bring us pleasure.
Thank you for friends, near and far, and for families that we treasure.

Thank you for the comforts of home that we all take for granted.
Thank you for hearing our prayers and keeping our faith deeply planted.

Thank you for the smallest detail of life we can’t even see.
Thank you for all creation, and that you Abba for creating me.

“Praise ye him, sun and moon:  praise him, all ye stars of light.  Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye water that be above the heavensl  Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created.”  Psalm 148:3-5
“O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.  Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy.”  Psalm 107:1-2
