Thankful Heart: Day 1

Unexpected Blessings

Thank You, God, for little things
that come unexpectedly--
To brighten up a dreary day
that dawned so dismally--
Thank You, God, for sending
a happy thought my way
to blot out my depression
on a disappointing day--
Thank You, God, for brushing
the dark clouds from my mind--
And leaving only sunshine
and joy of heart behind.
Oh, God, the list is endless
of things to thank You for
But I take them all for granted 
and unconsciously ignore
that everything I think or do,
each movement that I make,
each measured rhythmic heartbeat,
each breath of life I take
Is something You have given me
for which there is no way
for me in all my smallness
to in any way repay.

~Helen Steiner Rice

"Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song."
Psalm 95:1-2
