"i thank you God for most this amazing"

i thank you God for most this amazing...
e.e. cummings

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of all nothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

Thank You Gracious Father for:

- cloudless skies of brilliant blue

- fresh breezes that bend the boughs of trees and then rush through the house, ruffling the curtains

- touches of color contrasting sharply with the hues of green

- cooler temperatures wrapping around us, sending us running for sweaters hidden in the back of the closet

- the anticipation of holidays that turns our hearts to thoughts of You and family and dearly held traditions

- the warmth and comfort of home

- for early darkness that quiets us

- for the seasonal reminder of Your faithfulness and unfailing love
