mountain lakeThank You, GOD for everything
I've experienced here on earth.
Thank You for protecting me
from the moment of my birth.

And Thank You for the beauty
around me everywhere,
The gentle rain and glistening dew,
the sunshine and the air.

The joyous gift of "feeling"
the soul's soft, whispering voice
That speaks to me from deep within
and makes my heart rejoice.

Oh, GOD, no words are great enough
to thank You for just living,
And that is why every day
is a day for real THANKSGIVING.
