“Gratitude,” Friend, Nov. 2004, 7


I’m grateful for the sunshine’s rays

That brighten each new day.

I love the peace that always comes

At nighttime when I pray.

I’m grateful for the robin’s song

When days are long and warm.

I love, when autumn fades, to hear

The winter wind perform.

I’m grateful for the busyness

That every weekday brings.

I love, on Sunday, to sit still

And think of holy things.
