Days 1 & 2 - God Loves the World
God of All Creation,
We are thankful for all of your good gifts ~
for the brilliance of the sun and the softness of moonlight,
for the grass and the trees and the flowers with colors bright,
for the animals that prance, crawl, swim, and slither,
for the breeze and gentle raindrops that glimmer,
for our lives, You have wonderfully formed out of love,
We thank you for all the blessings you've given us from above. Amen.
