We Give Thanks
We give thanks to our God.
for all the earth and all creation.
That are wonderfully made
and held dear in the heart of our God.
and for our families.
For those we love,
those who love us
and for those without love,
because we can love them.
We give thanks for the food we eat
and for the ability to feed those without food.
We give thanks thanks for our life :
that we have it;
that it goes beyond our death.
We give thanks for our freedoms
and the freedom to choose our own attitude
no matter what our circumstances.
We are thankful for our health
and pray for those without health
that they might be strong
in mind and soul if not in body,
and we pray that they
might share their strength of spirit with us
as we share our strengthof body with them.
We give thanks for the abiility to serve
and to reap the benefits of our service.
for all good things,
We give You thanks, oh God.
I give thanks for you. Blessings to you and your family!
