A/N My cell group each wrote a paragraph of this and I put it all together and put it into verses. Its an outpouring of our gratitude and not supposed to be poetically correct concerning devices used etc.
Thank you for the earth you created
And all you put in it,
From the smallest insect
To the largest mountain.
Thank you that you care for
Each and every one of us
And that you made every one of us
With different characteristics,
That make us all individual.
Thank you for the light
That lights the path
When all we see is pure darkness.
The days go past
And we see a new facet of you
And thank you that something
As small as a seed
Can grow and grow
And become a beautiful tree that everyone sees.
Thank you Lord for the awesome beauty of your creation,
from the vastness of the universe
to the smallest intricate detail.
Lord, you created this whole earth,
You created the tastes and the smells
And the sights and the sounds,
The taste of coffee in the morning,
Or water on a hot day.
The smell of rain and fresh earth,
The beautiful views of rolling moorland,
Craggy mountains or beautiful ice cool lakes.
And for the spectrum of colours,
The different shades of green and blue.
For the sunrise in the morning.
The sounds of the wind in a tree,
Or the rain on the ground.
Thank you that you gave us the ability to feel,
A refreshing breeze or the softness of a cuddly toy.
Thank you Lord that you are so good to us,
That you gave us all these things.
Thank you that
In the midst of all this
You favour man
And that you know and love me.
You deserve more from me
Than I can ever give.
Thank you God for helping me
When I needed it the most.
And thank you
That you never leave me when times are rough.
You are the way;
And the life
And are the creator of all things
Now and forever more.
All honour and glory be to you, oh God.
