Godly Gratitude

I heard God say one word today.

I thought He was playing pranks.

I scratched my head, ’cause the word He said was

“Thanks, my little one, thanks.”

“Thanks for what?” I mused and mused

and urged Him to explain.

“Thanks for all you are to me

In sunshine and in rain.

Thanks for accepting my limitless love

Thanks for trusting in me.

Thanks for accepting my infinite care

When it’s difficult to see.

Thanks for giving your burdens to me,

Mistakes and all the rest.

Thanks for overlooking the past

and believing that I know best.

Thanks for noting my gifts to you.

Thanks for resting a while.

Thanks for turning now and then,

to give your companion a smile.

And while I’m at it, thanks so much

for leaving the future to me.

(Sr Joan Metzner, MM)
