I Thank God

I Thank God

I thank god for everyday,

Yesterday, tomorrow and today.

I thank him for the sun,

And the light that shines down.

I thank him for you,

And for the love that we have found.

I thank him for the green grass,

For the tall trees,

And for each rolling hill.

I thank him that since I've met you,

I can't contain the way I feel.

I thank him for the moon,

And for all of the stars to wish upon.

I thank him for your arms,

Because that's right where I belong.

I thank him for all of this,

And for so much more, you see.

Most of all I thank god,

For sharing you with me.

Beautiful poem. Loved the photo! I lived in Calif for 1 1/2 yrs-way too short. I love CA and often wish I was back, but my kids live in MI and I work in NC so...that's a problem. But, maybe one day. Carmel is one of the most beautiful places in the U.S. I believe.

Thanks for sharing. I wrote a hub about Gratitude and Blessings as well. :)

A lovely poem. Carmel is a lovely place to begin your life together. My in-laws lived in Carmel Valley. The whole area is a place of beauty. I am glad your heart was happy when you wrote this.

When I think of the people in my life that I love and who love me back, I also believe it is only because of a higher power that I have them. You put it all in very good words and I like picture. It is beautiful.

My dear Sunshyne...

There is nothing more powerful than Gratitude! Being Grateful is not only a leap of faith and confidence in the perfect handling of things by the Expert, The Heavenly Father, the Great Architect, Gratitude is an amplifier, a multiplier of goodness and wealth! Happy to know you feel that way for you are in the right path!

Warmest regards and infinite blessings,

Gratitude is like Grace, and a gracious person is easy to be with. I can see that you have found the splendour of God’s Grace in your travels and in your life. May you forever be His child. Great poem of acknowledgement.
