Lord, make me aware of each blessing,
The ones that I miss every day,
Like skies that are blue and flowers in bloom,
And friends that I meet on my way.
When my negative thoughts are too many,
And only the dark clouds I see,
Remind me, O Lord, of your presence,
In this day you have given to me.
Even when stillness surrounds me,
And thoughts are the company I keep,
Let your Word and your Spirit be with me,
Bringing comfort and peace to my sleep.
And tomorrow when cares would confront me,
I will take a few moments to rest,
To look at the sky and the flowers,
And think of the ways I am blessed.
