A Thanksgiving Blessing by Walter Rauschenbusch:

O God,
We thank you for this earth, our home;
for the wide sky and the blessed sun,
for the ocean and streams,
for the towering hills and the whispering wind,
for the trees and green grass.

We thank you for our senses by which we hear the songs of birds, 
and see the splendor of fields of golden wheat, 
and taste autumn's fruit, rejoice in the feel of snow, 
and smell the breath of spring flowers. 

Grant us a heart opened wide to all this beauty; 
and save us from being so blind that we pass unseeing 
when even the common thornbush is aflame with your glory. 

For each new dawn is filled with infinite possibilities 
for new beginnings and new discoveries. 
Life is constantly changing and renewing itself. 
In this new day of new beginnings with God, 
all things are possible. 
We are restored and renewed in a joyous awakening 
to the wonder that our lives are and, yet, can be.

Amen! :) I needed that prayer Wenny. It's just right for my birthday. Thank you :)

Happy Birthday Dear!

A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip and have lots of fun!
