Praise you, Lord. Thank you for this beautiful day that you have made for us. Thank you for these sweet birds that you bring to us. Thank you for the rest that you give us. Thank you for the peace you give us. Thank you for the delight you give us from day to day, and from moment to moment.
Thank you for showing me how life can be a beautiful thing. Thank you for opening my eyes to see this. May it bear fruit unto you, Lord, by enabling me to be a blessing unto others. Help me to share this joy with my neighbors. Help me to somehow be able to lighten their load, even the people I don’t know, that just something about my presence soothes them, your Holy Spirit flowing out of me, speaking to them in a language they can understand, the language of their heart.
Draw yours to you, Lord.
Hold us close.
Hold me close to your heart, Father. I love you, Father.
