A Prayer of Thanks
Thank you for sunny days
that follow after the storm,
for friends who let you talk or let you be silent
as the need arises,
for those little touches of love and light
that come, unexpectedly,
and o so frequently just when we need it.
Thank you Lord,
For letting yourself
be born on this earth,
to see those sunny days with human
as well as Godlike eyes,
for knowing what it really is like
to have friends who don't always understand,
but want to be with you,
who deal with your need for silence,
or your need to explain,
for experiencing how much those little touches
of love and light
Thank you Lord,
for walking those dusty paths
to teach us your truth,
For showing us other ways
to deal with enemies
besides hatred and anger
for chosing the road to Golgotha,
for being Emmanuel.
give me a grateful heart
and a mind to know
that no matter how dark the moment,
or sad the event,
you know what it means,
how it tastes,
how it aches,
how it devastates,
and that you will be there
to hold my hand
until the moment you bring me home.
