For every small thing

For every small thing

I thank Thee for the temporal blessings of this worldthe refreshing air, the light of the sun, the food that renews strength, the raiment that clothes, the dwelling that shelters, the sleep that gives rest, the starry canopy of night, the summer breeze, the flowers’ sweetness, the music of flowing streams, the happy endearments of family, kindred, friends. Things animate, things inanimate, minister to my comfort.

My cup runs over.

 

(From “The Valley of Vision: A collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions”)

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
