Thanksgiving Eve

Sun and moon, bless the Lord…
Stars of heaven, bless the Lord…
Every shower and dew, bless the Lord…
All you winds, bless the Lord…
Fire and heat, bless the Lord…
Cold and chill, bless the Lord;
praise and exult him above all forever.

From Daniel 3:62-67

It is the eve of Thanksgiving and the time has come for each of us to compose a list of the things for which we are grateful. When I am at a loss, feeling the worst that our earthy lives sometimes offer, it is to nature that I turn for consolation. This is a very good day for me (Yes, I know every day has the potential for good). Still, I turn to nature to begin my own list of blessings. Daniel’s words above offer a very good starting point for they name the great gifts of nature which we all share.

Tomorrow, I will enumerate blessings of my very own…

Loving, God, thank you for the beautiful earth and the universe within which it dwells. Give us caring hearts, that we may treasure and care for this gift as you would.
