Thankful Heart: Day 29
I Offer Thanks
I offer thanks for friends so dear,
For every word of joy and cheer,
The quiet moments I so love
And blue skies there so high above,
The special dreams that are my own
And every beauty I have known.
I offer thanks for Springtime days
And happiness on country ways,
The precious laughter of a child
And tiny violets growing wild,
The brook that murmurs as it flows,
The magic of a Junetime rose.
For sun and rain and gentle earth
The miracle of Spring's rebirth,
Each Autumn color bright and bold,
For snowflakes soft and Winter's cold,
The sea that rushes to its banks,
For God and love--I offer thanks.
~Garnett Ann Schultz
