Good Morning, God!

Good morning, God!
What a glorious day
You have given us;
the air is soft and cool,
the birds are chuckling in the trees,
the lingering fog
traces the angels’ wings
as they arise
to greet the sun.

The breeze
is tinged
with honeysuckle and lemongrass
awakening the spirit
of the earth;
the blades of grass
reach heavenward
shedding dew drops
of gladness.

In this instant
all Your creatures
sing praise to You
with a single voice;
a shout of gratitude
for our existence;
a thanksgiving
for life itself.

“If your only prayer is ‘Thank you,’ that is enough.”
~ Meister Eckhart
