Thankfulness

Thank you, Lord, for
Blue skies, sunshine
Pink and lavender sunrise,
Red, magenta, purple, violet
Petunias, tulips, pansies in riot
Crisp mornings, fresh coffee flavor
Bicycles, sneakers, senses to savor 

     Thank you, Lord, for
     Fresh mown grass, gentle noon breezes
     Raindrops on window panes, snow that freezes
     Playful kittens sleeping, cuddling close
     Phone calls from people I love the most
     Music, melody, sweet harmonies
     Pianos, singing, grand symphonies
     Plays on stages, reading, romance
     Laughter, silence, friendship’s glance 

          Thank you, Lord, for
          Horses to ride, beaches to stroll
          Corn on the cob, fresh dinner rolls
          Juicy sweet berries, tastes of summer abound
          Bright early morning with no one around
          Hot bubble baths, fresh milkshakes, cold water
          Computers, vacuums, strong arms, dishwasher
          Machines for laundry and other hard tasks
          Sons who smile and do what I ask
          Husband, strong father, patient and kind
          Loves unconditionally, can’t read my mind 

      Thank you, Lord, for
      Mothers, sisters, grandmothers, baking
      Dark chocolate, cold milk, warm cookies making
      Tender juicy steak – cooked just right
      Families, holidays, Christmas Eve night
      Honey on biscuits or sausage gravy
      Jesus, loving, dying, saving
      Sleeping, waking, a comfortable bed
God forgiving, gracious, just as He said
