a reminder to be thankful

Looking for inspiration this morning, I opened my prayer book and began reading.

"Bless Thee, O Lord, for the living arc of the sky over me this morning.

Bless Thee, O Lord, for the companionship of night mist far above the skyscraper peaks I saw when I woke once during the night."

Bless Thee, O Lord, for the miracle of light to my eyes and the mystery of it ever changing.

Bless Thee, O Lord, for the laws Thou hast ordained holding fast these tall oblongs of stone and steel, holding fast the planet Earth in its course and father beyond the cycle of the sun."

-Carl Sandburg
