Thank You, God

 God gave us trees, brilliant blue skies, fluffy white clouds, and, for most of us, eyes to see them.

He gave us music, the laughter of children, for some of us, the voices of our beloved soul mates, as well as ears to hear it all.

He gave  us sunshine, rain, cool breezes and a loved one's hand in ours.

God gave us tears when our hearts are breaking, comfort, acceptance and peace.

He gave us ice cream cones and the sound of a friend's voice,

Beloved pets and flowers in every color of the rainbow,

Sweet newborn babies that give hope to our world.

Yes, our Heavenly Father gave all of these things to us.

Thank you, dear God.

Thank you.

Beautiful photo and post. I am grateful for so many things that I hardly know where to begin. If I had to pick one, I would say, I am grateful for my mother to still be with us. God bless. xx

Hi Susan,
Thank you for your visit today. Your post is lovely! My gratitude list is very long and I couldn't begin to name all that I'm thankful for.

Today besides family and friends I'm thankful for anything that God gives me to keep me cool in these searing summer temperatures. The ocean, the lake, the pool, ice water with lemons, ice cream and well get the idea!
