"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

Blessings,

  1. "For early darkness that quiets us," love
    that, Linda. I was just thinking about
    that the other day. I am always glad
    when we go back to the regular time and
    it gets dark earlier. It does seem to
    quiet not just us but the world around
    us. Then we have time to be still before
    the Lord and rest in His presence even
    longer.

  9. Anyone who doubts the existence of God can just look around them. The wonders of nature ought to banish any doubt.
