I Give Thanks

Dear God,

I give thanks for those I love

And who love me, who are

my suns and moons, stars and planets.

They are the wind and the seas,

Mountains and the plains.

They are my earth,

My night and my day.

They are my skin and the

Beating of my heart.

My breath, my speech,

The stride of my legs,

The caress of my hands.

I give thanks for them.

Bless them, protect them.

They are my breathing in and breathing out.


-Rev. Dr. Jim Nelson
